Second Week of February (an Ekphrastic poem)


It has been four years
since we nearly lost Izzy,
our grandbaby girl.

It has been two years
since my mother passed on to
the heavenly realm.

Now my son-in-law’s
mother is hospitalized,
fighting for her life.

The second week of
the second month of each year
feels like a movie –

a film I am in,
but choose to view from a safe
distance. Unseated.

Scarlet graces black
bough and ground below. Silent
snow spills scant and slow.

Once butter-winged finch
faded, flutters. Winter cinched.
Wonder underway.

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

Icy winds gather
Treasures by dumpster
Most will miss
