Early At My Window

            yard light
breaks the darkness
     -morning cup of joe

++++++++++++++++++++++++

winter burns
white fingertip
-in a mitten hole

++++++++++++++++++++++++

morning light
on winter snow
cat tracks near the door

++++++++++++++++++++++++

early colors
                         displayed in grey
      bunny waits for dawn

++++++++++++++++++++++++

my long-haired cat
sheds mostly white
sleeping on my lap

Winter

black erasing white
on the farmer’s fallow field
-crows return to nest

+++++++++++++++++

Empty winter perches
cast blue shadows in the snow
mice tunnel below

+++++++++++++++++

Buds on the dogwood
waiting for springtime to burst
-caterpillar sleep
