Dressing for Spring

nature takes a turn –

bare branches dressing for spring

set sway in spring gust

Winter Sky

man’s gaze turn skyward,
blood orange moon, magical –
starry winter sky

A neighborhood cat, black and white,
comes strolling through the yard.
She is unusually stout for a stray cat.
She moves at an oddly relaxing pace.
As she meanders through, she stops behind the now cut tall grass.
She lays down for less than a minute then gets up, and slinks through the fence to the next yard, to a space behind the shed. She is heavy with child.

on gray autumn day
an air of expectation
kittens white as snow

where Grace is our host for the last challenge of this year with a very inspiring poem. Have a read!

A Knowing

the blush of autumn
now long gone, a quiet grace
takes its turn in time –
through creaky bones, a knowing –
like spring vines set to run wild
