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



I think spring has returned in the yellow giddy


And in the trickle of a stream

Near by.

How strange it seems

That winter has embarked here quietly

Waiting to blanket the garden


And to lull the new blooms to sleep.
