This December’s Interval


rock, leaf, ice, snow
elements and artifacts
underfoot

The Other Cabbage Rose


paradox of the purple bloom
petals holding both
snow and sun

Red Canoes Huddle In The Protection Of The Pines


as cold gathers
at the marsh’s edge
and starts to fill the sky

Treacherous Beauty


greeted by
the elegance of ice
in the glimmering morning
