As the Day Slowly Rises

beneath the surface
the clarity
of dreams persist

She Persists

the celebratory nature
of the garden persists
despite winter’s imposed dormancy

Hope’s Devotion

even as
winter’s darkness gathers
color and light persist

We Don’t Let The Weather Slow Us Down

of tractor seats
adorn the family barn

Efforts of Ice

sedulous winter
tries again and again
to make the cold hold
