whisker lickins

i can't be sure
and was a bit afraid to get too close to check
but what looked like little tufts
of Santa's beard
were on the sidewalk leading to
the Humanities Centre
oh ho
oh no

lions and tigers and bears...

and elephants are fine where they are
(or at least they should be)
so let's leave them there
where
they
live

snow globe

someone out there
is shaking things up in a big way
frost upon frost upon frost
a little icing on the cake
of everything

hoar frost morning

all crystalline
branches
boughs
sidewalks

overcast afternoon
kitten asleep in the nest of warm sheets

a Sunday of swaddles

pica pica

the magpies are getting suited up
rustling into tuxedo jackets
for a long friday night on the town
that will no doubt
wind well into saturday morning

bathed in pink

slowly setting
larches in twilight
putting the day to rest
in a few weeks we'll head the other way
a little more light
bit by bit by bit

but for now this shroud
hours in the dark
comfort in the tranquility
wrapping around all that is still
silent
