Winter Watch

Tangled…one ragged
leaf clings to the bough.

Stopping to see
the shape of a snowflake.

All day my windows
chatter like nervous teeth.

More amazing than redwood forests...
your ice blue eyes.

Winter storm…headlights
beam at noon.

Came home just in time
for the first dizzy dance
of frosty flurries.

Snowflakes spin together in
joyful pirouette…a cool ballet.
