Gray and white palette – Frosted pines bend in the wind; Ice crystals, floating.
MEMORIAL Immortalized names – Who only time remembers, In stone, on a hill.
SNOWFLAKE Fluffy white dusting – Blanketing all it touches, In cold purity.
SMOULDER Barely contained warmth. Heady anticipation. Waiting, wanting – ache.
3J’s A cry in the sky. Above, gnarly brown fingers – Three blue jays, perched high.
RESPITE A morning’s surprise – A thin sheen of dewy grass. Faint hint of a thaw.
PHONY Always smiling, sweet. Kind, saccharin voice – masking, Malcontent, discord.
WHITE FLAG Distracted today. Disorganized, common theme. Dishevelled I am.
SHAME Majestic creatures, Noble, gentle, so loving. Will we let you die?
BELIEVE Pale light, greeting me. Dark, cold but with a promise, Of a warmth to come.
