December Dodoitsu #10

dawning amber, silent morn
screaming tires, grinding spin
ripping through the frosted din
travelers beware


We had record breaking snowfall here in the Blue Ridge Valley. The official tally for my little town was 15 inches (38.1 cm). In a place where even a third of that depth can shut things down, I’m in no hurry to leave my cozy home. Bring on the hot cocoa and cinammon toast. Have a lovely Monday!

December Dodoitsu #9

frosted winter white, the rose
blushes crimson through the night
clinging to petals, frozen,
forever in bloom


November Naani #25

they will return in the spring,
dormant leaves, wintering,
when the days grow longer,
dawn’s chorus erupting


November Naani #10

peace exists
in the whisper of the wind,
the crash of waves on the shore,
but not in silence


November Naani #9

swift, the cold wind
sweeps through barren trees
ice-nipped air, drizzling sleet,
crisp, the leaves beneath our feet
