Dark clouds dump rain on
Dozens of sober toned automobiles
The ranunculus yellow Volkswagen
Stages a one car happiness sit-in

no children in red caps,
not even wind,
this winter day

Robin on the lawn
how was your breakfast of worms?
I had tea and toast

The kettle whooshes gently over dusty dry tea. Steaming water meets leaves in a gradual golden embrace, infusing the pot with warmth.

Sunrise at Colrain

Bitter chill of morning
Steals dark away
Pales the horizon to peach
Lays bare the hillside just in time
For Sol to pop up golden, and rip open the day

Oak and maple leaves gather
at the back door, crinkly
as old paper grocery sacks.

Dried husks of summer’s
long days, they beg to be let in
from the cold.

All that’s left is
a bare winter tree
that I will decorate with

I can feel you somehow
you put your hand in the
air when you sleep

the snow falls. The night
is dark.

On the golden cellophane around the chocolates you brought back for me,
as the mirrored circle expands
the crimson hearts grow from empty

The firm dark shell imprisons exquisite cream. Gooey whiteness, with a delicious dot of yellow, oozes from the bitten top. What tongue-twisting fun to pillage the inside of a Cadbury Egg.
