Midnight

outside the kitchen window

snow capped cedars glow

in moonlight.

It’s a grey day

frost in the air,

but at least I’m greeting it

in a great pair of shoes.

You leave silver trails behind you.

They glisten in the morning sun

like fairy roads on the concrete.

Such light from a creature that looks like dung.

I’ll never know

if I hide below

if I never go

beyond the flow.

The tree is heavy with red-winged blackbirds

like early black fruit,

strangely silent gathering

before the territorial grumblings begin.

Your jar of pickled poems–

cheek puckering poetry,

sour smiles behind glass–

makes me laugh.

My students handed in their poetry collections today.  Among them is a jar with poems written on green pickle shaped papers.  🙂   Bethany wins cutest poetry project.  Too bad it wasn’t a contest.  (Hmm.  Maybe next year?!)
