Written on a winter walk-

shimmering branches
suspended from winter sky
squirrel tracks in rhyme

~

melting april snow
tumbling from church gable
glisten on snowdrift

~

red dogwoods
floating in wind packed snow
sports a nibbled branch

~

spring promise
by the frozen field
— bare lilacs

~

white horizon
quivering in time
lit by blue sky
