aging winter bark
cracks, moans, fades, unfurls
much like this old girl

Winter streams give life,
Yet how icy are the veins
Through which blood runs cold.

Brief thaw, pre-spring
Sparrows share what little’s there
Charity takes wing

There is a season –
A time for ev’ry purpose
Under the heavens

It’s not the hard places
That stand out.

Icy winds gather
Treasures by dumpster
Most will miss
