her passing -
shadow into light,
then out


 

the burden
of winter sun ...
snow drops


 

melting
within my hand -
your presence


 

thawing snow ...
the urge to be useful
drop by drop


 

river fog
sculpting dreamscapes
from clay


 

the spring
now in his step ...
her smile


 

godwit in flight ...
winter dreams linger
in her wings


 

leapfrogging
over puddles ...
sound of rain


 

while she turns
to view the moon ...
lapping waves


 

spring moonrise ...
tonight the rooftops
are mountains


 

without words ...
lighting one more candle
against the night


 

autumn sea ...
leaving my boat
behind


 

riverrun
past Eve and Adam's ...
even words fail


 

cradling
her frame of reference ...
misty vigil


 

this chill
I cannot name ...
draining light


 

even ducks
interpenetrating ...
last snow


 

the back roads
vanishing from view ...
winter stars
