the sounds of horns and sirens

drowned out by rain beating on the window in my room

as gray light shoves through the darkness

i watch determined drops race down each pane

such ambition has always eluded me

painted white by fresh snow

daydreaming schoolchildren

and fogged up windows

Rawboned Branches

long rawboned branches

stretch far through a freezing fog

to scratch the sky’s back

The New Year

January 3, 2018

blackbirds float

over frozen white fields

unaware of a new year

forgotten bird flies

through a freezing moonlit mist

singing Auld Lang Syne
