Mixed Melody

Daffodils trumpet

golden music beneath sky’s

canopy of gray.

Winter Break

Before the leaves

bud with their bright Spring promise,

bare limbs stretch and rest.

Natural Reluctance

Late January

and those few red leaves still cling

to their mother’s limbs.

Seasonal Change

Having shed autumn

leaves, trees deck themselves out in

scintillating ice.
