Sunday Morning

Contrary to previous years, 
It's been quiet in the Winter department this year.
The sky, trees and lawns are mostly grey.
 a  Bluebird or a Cardinal will flutter by 
and make my heart happy. 
I'm grateful for the beautiful morning sunrise,
and the spectacular Winter sunsets.
The quiet of the woods,
the flicker of a candle,
the outrageous work of dedicated souls 
protecting our rights of the Constitution 
is what makes today a good one.
This was our front yard a few years back
On a snowy October morning.

Should The Fox Come Again To My Cabin In The Snow

Then,  the winter will have fallen all in white
and the hill will be rising to the north,
the night also rising and leaving,
dawn light just coming in, the fire out.

Down the hill running will come that flame
among the dancing skeletons of the ash trees.
I will leave the door open for him.

Happy New Year!

As the days become longer....
may your sun shine brighter,
may your clouds be fluffier, 
may your winds be gentle, 
may your hearts be content. 
Welcome, 2017!
