I’ve Got My Love to Keep Me Warm

Catching my breath at the suddenness

Of Steam

fills the air

As clouds travel hurriedly to their unknown destination

An untrodden path to the woods I have visited many times before in other seasons

Still I know what lies beneath…the Fall

Now covered in white

With Unblemished diamonds

And infinite facets

Yes,How good it is

To Love like Winter



Winter Sacrifice

The cow trundles through the diamonds

It Seems the fence was lowered by the old tree some time ago

Now To be cut up into manageable pieces

For the hearth and stove on cold nights

And the sweet scent of smoke will rise

To join the clouds and roam the earth

Just as the cow
