That Wintry Minx

 

 

as mercury dives
a wintry mix freezes
life into sculpture

the only up side
to burst pipes spewing water
ice castles forming

sounds of a faucet
above the icy silence
drip
drip
drip
drip
drip

All That Glitters

4448ABEA-878E-4863-A4A9-A077F825AD8D

Glitter of fall gold
Lunaria annua
Jangle in the wind

Sun’s x-rays give us a peek
The promise of future life

Steadfast

 

 

C8B55513-087F-41B2-AE86-DAD32D881F8A

The glow of life as it recedes
Deep into the dormant stage
Gathering energy, steadfastly waiting
For the first hint of spring’s warmth
To release the sleeping beauty within
And begin the life cycle anew

Mortality

In the night sky
Blink of an eye
A life passes by
Burning brightly with abandon

Broom sedge scarecrow
Greets the salmon sunrise
Song of revelry
