Diddy-Bopping To The Winter Doldrums.


Diddy-Bopping To The Winter Dol-drums.


Winter settles
in a shroud of
8 inch star dust,
gleaming in the

morning sun,
whose weak rays

can still make

ten trillion diamond
sparkles that

fascinate me.

I recline from

my visual mining

of nature's beauty,
with a pad of paper
and the stub

of a pencil,
to stencil my


January looms

ahead burdened

by February's
woven white

that will still be

layered in folds,
through the

long March
we all must


But I've got
a crackling fire,
putting a bright glow
on my wood stove,
two Corgi's to
slipper my feet,
and a would pile
full of poetic dreams
to see me

It's funny.. I was just thinking now that the holidays are almost over, it's time to settle in for a long cold winter. I think you captured that feel perfectly here..
