Blackbird Dawn

Winter skies, full of rain, the hush of a still daybreak. Christmas lights and garlands brighten neighbour’s gardens.   A blackbird tops the maple a robin in the birch, rivals for territory birdsong sprinkles the dawn.   Bare trees stand sentinel, limbs raised in gladness, twinkling with raindrops this soft December day.

Tangerine Morning

Frost carpets the fields sloping to a crinkled sea, the air cotton crisp as spring leaps in.   Satin crows descend from a silver sky, squabbling, they graze on chilled dewdrops.   The sunrise, a red ribbon glow warms tall tree trunks basking in gliding light.   A flame horizon burns a candy stripe sky on […]
