Deep into Winter

north light,



textures,




colors leeched by
snowfall . . .

the body rests,
the mind restless,

watching veils
blow about
sleeping gardens,

rustling a lone bird
back to cover . . . 

summer 
a faint memory

of sunlight and sea salt 
breezes

that tapped and danced
 along rooftops and down alleys



seeking a way back
to the beach, to home waters . . .

Beautiful pictures and words. We had such a blistering summer that we wished for winter. We got our wish by record snow and ice. Now I'm afraid to wish for summer!
