Snowbound

Door blocked by drifts, wind
knocks me back. Cold smack of snow
shouts Stay inside, fool.

Winter storm

Snowfall as music —
light flakes grace notes, blizzard chords
pounded in fury.

January thaw

Sodden ground swampy
a mash of leaves, plants, flowers
once distinct, now soup.

Winter sun

Summer is golden
butterscotch, January
skim milk, thin weak pale.

Overlooked

Forgotten summer
umbrella aged by winter’s
wig of heavy snow.

Over the holidays

Ate bad stuff. Gained weight.
Hate myself. Still, I think, There’s
always tomorrow…
