January 27: Morning Meditation 5

the mind snowstorm white
washer's long vibrato chant
calm inside the storm

January 26: Before the storm

Blizzard warnings.
Clouds shut down the last blue sky,
sink over the mountain.

January 25: Heron in the snow

Heron in the snow--
old man bent against the cold
we can only watch

January 24: Winter morning on the river

For my mother, watching--
 
Snow starts to fall.
An Averkamp skating scene
plays out on the river.

January 23: River ice

Iced over, bank to bank--
skaters carve circles above,
river flows below.

January 22: Morning Meditation 4

Before I close my eyes
Jupiter on the horizon
aligning my focus

January 21: Home

Home from work
Orion rising over the house
Our place in the galaxy
