Though it is leafless

The proud tree is unashamed

It is clothed in lights

I Know It’s There

The sun is up there,

But the thick cloud cover makes

It seem like twilight

 

Angry Wind

The wind shakes the trees

And pelts the windows with rain

What made it angry?

 

A Stolen Day

Warm sun and birdsong.

January has stolen

A mild day from spring.

 

Light of the World

There’s a bluish light

Over the world, challenged by

Gold from the windows.

 

Chestnuts in a Bowl

There is a small bowl

Of chestnuts on the terrace

Now with ice frosting.

 

Pluto

 

A dwarf planet now.

How did it feel, I wonder,

To be demoted?

 

Neptune

 

Such a lovely blue,

But icy cold and hostile

With the fiercest storms

 

Uranus

Father of titans

What would you say if you knew

Of all the butt-jokes?

 

Saturn

More than a hundred

Moons by your side. And one might

Even be alive.
