On The North Wind

Claws at the throat

Chills the lungs and very bones

Clutches at the heart.

On Winter

Impatient buds

Burst open out of season

Confusion reigns

Boxing Day II

How quickly things shift

Within days memories fade

Was anything real?

Boxing Day

This is the day when

The presents were exchanged

Now it’s just shopping.

On Christmas Day II

Festivities pause

Out walking in the sharp air

Feel the Sun’s blessing.

On Christmas Day

Sun will rise, tide turn

Whatever man plans to do

Nature has plans too.

Solstice III

Now the Sun moves not

The darkness is firmly held

We know summer comes

Solstice II

Our route out complete

Slowly we turn toward home

Cold shadow retreats

Solstice

Shroud of Arctic night

Falls heaviest on this day

Sun catches her breath

On Reflection II

Without visible

Paths out of the darkest forest

Listen for the stream
