Winter Solstice

early morning wind;

snow blows

through the darkness

onto the garden shed

river birch leans

into a flaky

cloud  of feathers

on the roof

a pigeon nest rocks

twigs and grass

fly by my window

Disabled

I wake early

to lengthen the days

bedroom

shrouded in memories—

photos, shells, stones

yesterday’s  triumphs

and failures

measuring

the bones

Winter

morning stillness

a lone robin

invokes spring

“tzeeup, tzeeup”

frost gathers

on the sweet

gum tree

clings to the fruit

glistens on the grass

below

early face of morning

smooths

my spiny soul

Green walnuts
ground covered leaves
bare feet wading
ripples
of earth-scent —
magenta, burnt orange,
sunset red
rousing
nosedive
flash

Lightning split, it
clings to the roof
heart leaves
crisp and curling
once shaded ground
now a desert’s
fluttering wing
dried-up throat
watching the ruins.

a whisper–

morning frost

pale grass

crickets earthworms spiders

bedding into the ground

green tomatoes

on the windowsill

cutout pumpkins on the porch

candy apples & popcorn

ghosts hanging

alone
in a field
gather wild impatiens-
a swish,
a rustle,
a sigh;
pint-thoughts
spin away;
spores volley
across the ether;
seedlings
full of themselves,
splashing
silence
