waxing gibbous growing to the full moon
cold days and nights, snowy white ground,
white above, also cold, frozen places,
me, thankful to be inside where I
can read, write, sip spring tea, dream.
waxing gibbous, approaching Full Moon
Inspired by reading winter haiku, drinking a tisane of spring flowers and leaves, on a cold night with the almost Full Moon outside my window.
a temple revealed
high in the heavens
Should the new year begin with rain?
Well, it did. What can we say
about this meteorological prophecy for the year?
Rain is necessary for life. We begin
the year properly. Water the seeds. Sunlight.
A sunny April day in late January.
A warming strong wind the past days
erased the remaining snow, dried the ground.
I took tea outside and read new poems.
Buds watching me chuckled over my joy.
