Together

DSC01831
little house
in the snowy woods
by the rock walls stood

Winter Conjure

DSC01701
a spell was cast with mist and cloud
the silence spoke
whilst glistening snow listened

Practice

DSC01689
the bench alone
in cold contemplation
deliberation of spring

Only Sunshine

DSC01708
winter came
the only sunshine
was conversation

Willing To Be Lead

DSC02729
the road
leading into the wilderness
leads out as well

Hallowing

DSC02701
outside the church window
the prayer and devotion
of snow

Echo of Wings

DSC02595
dragonflies
frozen in flight
the sound of the chime
hollowed by cold

How Long the Winter

DSC02357
how deep the snow
how thick the ice
how far the mountains

Voyage

DSC02330
a melt, the freeze, then awe
an ocean to cross
to reach the shores of spring

Neighbor

DSC02381
rest and nest
in a house in the woods
where wind is the nearest neighbor

Shatterings

DSC02167
each crack and shattering
revealed new connections
and the permanence of change

Gleaming

DSC02286
traverse the inevitable darkness
in honor of the gleaming
of the morning sun

New Horizons

DSC02257
winter caresses
the line of the limb
the reach of the branch
every new horizon

Off Season

DSC02267
the summer house
in winter entertains
snow and cold

Taciturn Sky

DSC02245
a rustle of leaves
the sleeting snow
single digits
dip below

The Wave

DSC02247
dismissing winter
beckoning spring
so brave the grass’ gesture
