Winter’s Revelations

IMG_1359Winter reveals the

wonder of trees –

lacy limbs dividing,

then dividing again,

branches curving high,

arching and bending,

narrowing into many

sturdy brown hands and fine fingers –

held open as if to

bless the wide blue sky.

 

Winter reveals the

beauty of breath –

frosts the steamy workings of

our hidden inner tree –

bronchi dividing to bronchioles

branching off,

finer and finer,

until the microscopic alveoli

perform their miracle –

lungs transform air into the blood,

praising in every breath,

blessing us with life.

Hoppily Ever After

IMG_0093They all
lived happily
ever after
but now
happy
is that carrot
swaying just
ahead
never
quite
in the teeth,
the earthy damp root
of imagined happiness
on
ever hungry
tongues.
Pet rabbit
knows
better,
snatches
every carrot from
your fingers,
runs away,
hides
under the bed,
content.
