Cold

As the temperatures hover near 20 below, I snuggle by my fireplace and think of summer’s glow.

surrounded by cold
white-winged snowfinch fluffs feathers
eyes closed fast asleep

~~~

during winter storm
icy snow torn from its banks
-nature’s throw pillows

~~~

winters whitest ice
burns all the flesh it touches
without yellow flame

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
