January 2016

New Year's dawn
the familiarity
of this light

a cool start
vastness takes on
the comfort of blue

first page
the plum tree
picked clean

New Year
morning glances off
everything
the freshness now
of what will not be
at year's end
carbon footprint
I feed my inner 
phytoplankton
new diary
my carbon footprint
in ink blots
it begins
coolness tramped down
far underfoot
new year heat
valley hills soften into
a misty blue
who knew?
all the old out 
with the news
