December 14: Deer in the woods

A week before Solstice.
Shadows of deer
moving among bare trees.

December 13: Election

While the Solstice is about a week away, sunset this afternoon is a tiny bit later than yesterday. Our turn toward the light has already begun.

Election results.
One minute more of daylight,
one less of darkness.


December 12: Bridge

Early morning dream:
bridge across Penobscot Bay.
Sky white now with snow.

Village cemetery 
where my grandmother’s buried
covered with snow.

December 10: After the storm

Echoes of last night’s storm—
laden branches letting loose
small clouds of snow.

December 9: Snowstorm

Shadow government.
Three crows flying
in a city snowstorm.

December 8: If wishes

Diversionary tactics. 
Trying to wish gulls
into Snowy Owls.
