Winter Poems

  • 1.          He Returns
    
    
    	His sound surrounds me,
    	and it is lovely
    	that aimless thoughts
    	do not need to be my friends
    	or my enemies.
    
    	The red-headed woodpecker
    	searches for soft bark,
    	and I do not have to wait	
    	for something
    	else.
    
    
    2.          Rain at Last
    
    
    	I move stone and sand
    	around the water-logged walkway.
    
    	I welcomed the rain.
    	and now I welcome sun.
    
    	The nature of opposites
    	brightens my neighbor the forest
    	without apology.
    
    
    3.           December Moon
    
    	After the rain, a clear night
    	shines full moon against
    	the early dark.
    
    	I open the driveway gate for you.
    	Quickly, a cloud surrounds the white circle
    	with rings of gold.
