November 16



On my morning commute

I stopped at the sign

Fleeting moments captured


Just like every damn day

But today was different

Translucent, transcendent


Just like every damn day

The sky was bright, so was the sign

Seconds stalled to permanence


As the frost slipped down

Revealing alarming red

Temporary forever


(A Line Messaging Poem)

November 14

Winter Woods


They’re wondering about the shine out there

Mourning the fall on this frosty morning

Bare gray branches are more than they can bear

Warning us winter came without warning


No other season questions what you know

Wait while dormant branches support snow’s weight

So strong as below acorns gray squirrels sow

Ate one, shared one, then buried the next eight


I know winter’s magic astounds the eye

Piece of the woods covered in snow brings peace

Sky blue birds migrate past in the blue sky

Geese in their way in the v-shape of geese


Right now’s so stunning makes me want to write

Site’s so lovely it really is a site


(A Shadow Sonnet)
