ol ' man

people speak
of winter
as if it were
an uninvited guest
asleep on
the couch

though he is wont
to lazing about
i do not mind his
company
the cats make
sport of his snoring

he yawns
scratches and
blusters
i make tea
and pour over
seed catalogs

the birds
chirp through
a flurry of braggadocio
they know
a swan song
when they hear one

For Magpie Tales

passage

La Jument photograph by Jean Guichard 
you are not
 poetry
you
 are its side effect
you
 are not
 music
you 
 are
 my stillness
you
  are not
 my savior
you
 are my melancholy
you
 are not
 timeless
you
 are
 now

brick and mortar

we greet the future
armed with comfortable patterns
invincible plaids

indestructible
time-honored, ready to ride
ingenuity

let the kids all laugh
make hobbies of our old ways
just leave them alone

they always come home

winter in the woods

grey woolred mittens my heart is a cardinal your sleeve a high branch
i sing through my storms you plow through your memories our burdens break ice
