Hints

Snowdrop buds appear,
hints of beauty yet to come.
Winter darkness fades.

Denial

The days lengthen,
the cold strengthens;
Winter in denial that
the return of the sun
has begun.

Winter Birds

Holly with berry
Hungry winter birds
feasting on nature’s bounty:
red holly berries.

Over

Summer’s over,
evenings cooler,
darkness earlier,
soon be Winter!

Fingertips

Deceptive
bright sunshine,
bitterly cold wind.
Winter still hangs on;
fingertips.

Chill Wind

Magnolia buds
unfurl into the chill wind.
Winter’s dying breath.

Hard Frost

Snow in short supply this winter,
I awake to a world of white.
A bitter, cold, hard frost
will have to suffice!

Unstoppable

Unstoppable flow,
Spring signs increasing, woken
from Winter slumber.

First Day

Officially
the first day of summer;
and yet it seems
winter has returned.

Triumph

Drab winter slowly yields.
Snowdrops fade, crocus come and go,
all around new growth erupts
and over all the daffodil
trumpets in triumph.
