Rite of Spring II

Sacrificial dance
Downy snowflakes whirl and fall,
Kiss the earth – and melt.


As the World Turns

Vernal equinox
Though the wind is bitter cold
Hope – spring’s eternal.

Out Like a Lion

Wet snow, icy rain –
Winter’s weather quota filled
Two days before spring.


Rainy winter day
Geese stand like statues of geese
On the sodden lawn.


Flurrying snowflakes
Swarm over a frozen stream
Like summer midges.


The first flakes of snow
Stitched on a gray quilt of sky
Gulls soar silently.


Bitter cold morning
The rays of the rising sun
Bring light but no warmth.
