If Summer Could Go On Forever


sunflowers would
shine their cheerful light
through winter’s dark night

Spot Of Green


the spice of ginger
sweet sight of snowdrops
a feast for winter weary eyes

Vestiges


nestled between
the snow and log
late fall’s remains

Exuberance


praise the amaryllis
injecting color
into winter

Cold Astronomy


galaxies
grew on the window
a celestial body made known

Old Structures Reminisce


behind the arbor and gazebo
berries blush recalling
memories of summer kisses

Tall Tales Told


I stood with the trees
listening to them
share their stories

Directions Home


at the fence end
the birdhouse’s front yard
a round of iris pods

Covered Bridge


who will be
the first winter traveler
to cross the still running brook?

The Weight Of Lightness


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

Letting The Light In


through vulnerabilities
we meet each other
and find ourselves

The Queen’s Scepter


knighthood
is bestowed upon
all the glories and duties of snow

Time Tags Light


shadows chase
late afternoon
through the woods

Defying The Elements


sweet hydrangea
her summer bloom lingers
on a honeycomb of petals

The Space That Snowflakes Make


in the falling silence
the space to release worries
and find peace

Keeping Company


the garden shed
and branch bench
share the wait for spring

Faint Light


the woods
hold onto night
and cast it into a dark day
