dreamy drifts


Behold the first snow

So beautiful to watch fall

From behind the glass

The once green landscape

Blanketed in soft layers

Mounding around trees

Everything peaceful

Almost magical indeed

The frozen fields

supreme song


Howling witch, wind cries

Powerful breath cuts a swath

Leaves skeleton trees

reternal life


Pretend you’re a leaf

Waiting to be born each spring

As life, fresh and green

Weather summer’s days

Take your beauty sleep at night

Growing full and lush

Feel the seasons change

You begin to show your age

Autumn’s crisp colors

Become ground cover

Transforming into compost

Winter feeds the trees

Root systems find you

You journey to a new home

You’re reborn in spring
