approaching sunset
the world grows so much colder
birds can’t bear to sing

                ~

coldest wintertime
is covered with morning frost
-future dreams below

               ~

gritty winter frost
covers the tall prairie grass
hiding shadow’s song

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
