The road signs have been

Adorned during the cold night

With sparkling powder

Close Call

Whirling up downy

Snow and feathers, the pigeon

Escapes the grey cat.

 

It Rained Last Night

Waiting for their turn

To finally meet the ground.

Pearls in the branches.

 

First Bud

The first tiny bud

All downy it peeks at me

With a shawl of frost.

 

Old Man Winter

The sun fights for warmth.

Though winter is growing old,

His grasp is still strong.

 

Smug Pine

During summer they

Laughed at my prickly needles.

But who’s laughing now?

 

Running on Ice

Slipping and sliding

Still, I refuse to be a

Fair-weather runner.

 

Eiderdown

Snow fairies have left

Their eiderdown on my lawn.

Sleep well until spring.

 

Stepping Outside

A deep breath of cold

The azure sky promises

A beautiful day

 

The Beginning of a Day

I watch colours creep

Onto, into the roof tiles

In the quiet dawn.
