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

For those who have experience mid-west winter weather, you’ve learned that December warm fronts proceed killer blizzards. Legendary storms stories always begin with “It was a warmer than normal start to the day!”

December fog drifts
over the freshly tilled field
-nature seems wary

Just before the winter storm
Gives this last taste of autumn
