a heavy snow
with the lightest of flakes
thus descends a shroud of cold

the quieting white
shrouds
December’s last days

More than Rain, Lighter than Snow

dormancy depends
on darkness gathering round
the necessary shroud
sheltering inchoate spring

Wearing a shroud of winter
the rock sculpture endures
certain of Spring’s dominion.

Magic in the Mist


Beneath the shroud of early morning mist
all creatures and growing things pause
and give thanks for the coming day.
