Another New Snow

the white on white
of birch in snow
a calming quietude

The Weight Of Lightness

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


I gave
my heart to nature
now I am never alone

Storm Window

mountains of snow
gather on each pane
showing us this storm’s terrain

To Thrive In All Circumstance

weather the storm
and make it
a flower

At The Border

on the edge of the storm
we are not quite yet
consumed by the commotion

With Childlike Wonder

the landscape expressed
the glittering shimmering
excitement of Christmas

They Dwell Together

length of birch
layers of brick
swirling of snow

Breaking Out Of Darkness

a shaft of light settles
on the blue diamond delphinium
saved from the pounding rain
