  • Winter Lullaby

    after the storm
    children make snow angels
    that sparkle with grace


    left behind sledge . . .
    a blackbird's footprints

    red mist
    the solstice bonfire
    sizzles with sleet

    trail of pines
    their blue shadows
    stretch into dusk

    native hens skid about
    on the thick lake ice

    winter lullaby
    a hush of wind
    moves the flame
