poetry and prose about place

snowfall and summer

with 6 comments

snow rocking in hammock




in the hammock

the snow rocks

gently, enthralled by


of fireflies

owl calls


wind harasses

the pines

mutters them miserable

snow fall ceases

stars punctuate

indigo sky


snow dwindles

shrinks and sublimates

the hammock cradles

a frail cadaver, swings

in obedience to

winter storm

    • Hi. No, we usually bring it in. The season just overtook me this year. Oh well. At least the snow can pretend it’s summer! Jane
