In The White Quietude


like fresh snow
tranquility settled
over everything

Port in the Storm


hanging on
with gratitude
for what is available

Accumulation


blizzard snow
so fine it can be missed
as it gathers in inches and feet

Flight Delay

milkweed seeds shiver
reluctant to fly
side by side with the snow

Tresel

outlined as it is obscured
all the same
the bridge remains

New Horizons

winter caresses
the line of the limb
the reach of the branch
every new horizon

Hold Fast

DSC01998
our hearts recognize each other
let them touch and then hold fast
like birch in snow
never letting go
