Petal Flake Snowball

white hydrangea
the snow
before the snow

Aparctias


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

Humility

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