but the place we warm our hands
is the kitchen sink

Up out of the deep
the inner material
overwhelms our boat

in the morning the children
rush to make snow men

the Christmas windows beckon
trees are full of lights

up at the top of the tide

brightens the morning dooryard

hatches out of a dark place
when we least expect

at the winter's beginning
then we embrace it

gets turned around in the woods
follows her nose home

Raw winds have skattered
the last of the russet leaves
to carpet the woods

[Negative Space]

Bits we cut away
may be as evocative
as the work itself

Pools of quietude
in the gyre and the snow
blackness in the pines

Low angled sunlight
raking across the barrens
painting the snow pink

[Pocket Fish]

Even the small things
can appear monumental
when they fill your mind

Twisting its way down
into the abyssal deep
fish escapes the net
