Bright Days of Winter

In winter, the bare trees cast shadows on the ground at night–with the moon as the solitary spotlight. Blues, grays, shades of white–the world is an Ansel Adams pictorial.

Trees, even the broken and gnarled, show their shapes shamelessly naked. Vine and berry garland branches.Color flits through early morning branches, and the birds that were only voices in summer show themselves in brilliant hues.

Crisp, breathless days.

February Melts

Snow slides down the rooftop in ice-age decline–melting and freezing with sunlight and darkness. The house spangles in a glimmering necklace. North, south, west, the stalactites prism the sunlight. I play icicles like a xylophone—causing cascading tinkling of broken water.
My mittened hand grabs the chilled treat, and I sample its chill on my tongue. I am disappointed at first that it is not sweet in spite of its clarity– I thought perhaps the taste of sunshine or sky. Then I savor the earthiness of thawing.
