Post Solstice

Darkness pours in each morning
to fill the blanks
of the new year's empty page.
Silence and darkness
no resolutions, no
schedule, just the calendar
of the dark woods
and its appointment with each
sleeping creature.



A doorway opens out onto snow, another
doorway. Where did all this possibility
come from? It comes from behind a larger door
that has slid shut the gray slab of morning sky.
Then the door cracks open slightly,
and the pieces start falling again millions
of tiny keys with which to open stars


haiku triptych

winter mending
sliver moon
in morning clouds 


first snow
every tree
holding silence


morning birds
gathering winter's
small sounds


Jennifer Burd, Ypsilanti, Michigan
