Not that eyes closing
But running gets hard to see
With eyelids frozen

On the Roads

Contemplating work…

   On the Roads

Crusty ruts of ice
Accumulate on the roads
Plowing’s too high priced

But then they did clear
Yesterday. The roads now neat
And more snow appears

Through the Mind

Contemplating meditation…

Muscles burn novel
Thoughts meander through the mind
Working the shovel

This Is Routine

Contemplating experience…

   This Is Routine

People forget when
They’ve not seen it for a while
First snow once again

Draped In White Velvet

Contemplating wonder…

   Drape In White Velvel

Soft falling petals
Landscape draped in white velvet
The quiet settles

Trees wearing white wigs
More snow last night than last year
Once again we dig
