december blooms

Blooming in December,

Golden Petals

On a thin branch

Where wintering birds

Normally perch

Waiting for bread crumbs to spill through

The holes in shallow pockets.

For a moment

It seems

That the sun has warmed the earth again

The soil

Under my feet

Soft

And

I think spring has returned in the yellow giddy

Blooms,

And in the trickle of a stream

Near by.

How strange it seems

That winter has embarked here quietly

Waiting to blanket the garden

Soon

And to lull the new blooms to sleep.
