Snowstorm

IMAG0032Winter Bird Feeder

Snowstorm

The snow blows in from the sea -

creates fragile white blossoms

on the end of thin azalea branches

and erects ivory statues on objects

that remain in a winter yard.

The distant sun glints off

large mounds in the shiny coverlet

which now shrouds the land.

Sanctuary #2

Sanctuary #2

Winter needs no permission

for its collection of clouds

that carry snowy storms.

Our judgement may not

rejoice in the acceptance

of this season’s situation.

Some nights, however,

in the still, crisp air

the full moon spreads

its pale light over

the alabaster landscape -

brings a sense of sanctuary

to the troubled soul.

Not Under the Tree

We are all travelers

who wander in the wilderness,

who follow the dream star,

who look for sanctuary –

a place to be reborn.

The world spins madly,

with a multitude of distractions,

a path simply trod

would lead us to home.

Mist

Misty Isle

Misty Isle

Mist

A fine mist settles

over a lake that does
not stir from slumber –

a lazy, meditative moment.

Today’s deluge of rain

will nourish landscape,

fill rivers whose flow

will flood to rapids,

while the waning moon

lies hidden behind clouds.

For now, no storms to brave,

Only a slight breeze which

murmurs in the bare branches.

Late Winter & Announcement

Darl clouds 2Dark Clouds

Late Winter

Late winter wind that

howled through budding branches,

chased clouds from night sky,

is mum in morning’s first moment.

Dawn’s bright light phosphoresces

off long slabs of ice that float

randomly on lake’s slight waves.

Seagulls line up in a row, ready

for the ride, and watch with wonder

the enfolding of spring.
