a dash of color and sweetness


December 22 - December 26 Week 49/72


a green wreath brightened with sprigs

of freshly cut winterberry adds

a welcome circle of color as days

hanging on the end of a long pendulum

begin their gradual swing back

to the possibilities of a new growing season

until then, I revel in the stunning beauty of purple carrots

seasoned with the sweetness of frost-filled nights

which have also coaxed the ice back into the lake

framing a beaver whose quiet munching

breaks the hushed stillness of Christmas Eve
