Petal Flake Snowball

white hydrangea
the snow
before the snow


the north wind
singing in the grass
calling winter home

Our Close Proximity

the storm
an instruction
of togetherness

Winter’s Composition of Time

measurements made
in the time it takes
for a snow flake to fall

Knowing Better We Had Hoped Anyway

dashing the hope
of early spring
winter returned

Fare Thee Well

feathered ones know
winter says goodbye
in snow


flakes as light as air
and still the humble pine
bows deeply to winter
