Insight


Realization
how long I’ve been longing for
clear December light
a transformation in white
the same deep deep crunch of snow
I loved as a child

Storm


Northwesterlies blow
sweeping city streets silent
wise wide river slows

swift ebb and flow delves deeper
as branches gathering snow
the winter knows me

Oblation

Now our wintry sun
arises and sets too soon
our discourse holding
us between heaven and earth
every hour an offering
a waiting season

Snowlight

Breathing December
in like gulping a first breath
an awakening
accepting each silent night
new mysteries unfolding
fresh as fallen snow

Reversal


I will go I must
revisit spaces where dreams
were real to the touch
shadows obliterated
even winter retreating
from our laughter

Tangent


Silent old winter
meandering river eyes
the wooded ice path
imagining us there still
as if we could ignore the
changing of seasons

Wingspan


Following the sun
arriving where we started
flight after winged flight
night to day and day to night
no journey too long for us
whose hearts travel light
