Ash Tree

Early budded ash tree –

the cold winds further north –

a new light holds your long,

dark branches in its thrall.

- written with Sherry Kearns

Gust of Winter Wind

The wind in the trees, as

if the branches would be

torn away from their trunks

and blown over rooftops –

we stand below, squinting

into the thin daylight,

the birds, the squirrels gone,

bare hours all there are.

Both fine pieces. I feel "Gust of Winter Wind" as taste, and like the camera-like movement away from the images.
