twelve past four in the afternoon
winter light leaving day

i see

my feet standing on

water streaming over

gravel driveway

surrounding mist
thousand tiny rain drops

dropping

wetting my face
hair
hands
my shirt and pants

waking me up

what was that dream of grief

i reclaim my life

now

noticing the world is still here

rain falls
melting

long frozen sorrows below the
snow

frost heaved furrows open
soft earth

saturated
ground

mid-winter slanted sun
shines the north slope
clean

my unseen face

the

longest night

can you admire the moon
as she shines
new to full

glowing giant on horizon’s edge
bright in the night
reflecting day again

orbiting you
her light for you
waning and waxing for you

can you bear the shifting tides
the pull of gravity

for love

of the moon

the first snow came
hard
before all the leaves had fallen

no red, orange and yellows
some still cling
lifeless
ghostly green
to the branch

looking up

out the window

head tipped –

what does my indoor cat

think of the falling

snow

now autumn falls full
rain wet leaves
wind twirled twigs lie about
morning comes late and night comes early
i try not to anticipate
your voice
any more than i would

the spring
