stars fix high
comet and shooting star race
across face of sky

their tails spark flame
fizzle like the bubbles in champagne
as pistols that misfire in the rain
wets a whistle of an early morning train

dawn bring light
soaring sight of sun strident

call energies to bear
love nature of a deer
the doe demonstrative with her fawn

combing the wood for juicy leaves hung on
stems that cling to giving limbs
speedy breezes blow up strong

blades of grass suspended in their ice
wait for sun
to render plump and tender

in frostbite stay alive
winter sacrifice
fierce frigid force wind defy

the moon is cool
forsake the aching chill
sun sleep soundly round and still
to elevate in his wake
as a full moon will.
