January 29, 2015

a curve where the plow
lost its way in the snowstorm
we gasp in unison


January 28, 2015

halfway down the hill
our dark blue sled gets lost
to the coming night


(HT to KS for hearing a haiku in my story)

January 27, 2015

fresh snow, fresh tracks
long before we were awake
that front yard bunny

January 25, 2015

everyone comes home
winter boots full of water
lakeside sledding hill


January 24, 2015

college mailbox
seeing my dad’s handwriting
for the first time

our brick walkway
glazed with ice this evening
we reach for each other


January 19, 2015

January 18, 2015

the long gash they cut
as a fire gap in the woods
full of fog tonight


January 17, 2015

rhythmic thwack
of a happy dog’s tail
repeating stories


January 16, 2015

January 14, 2015

sweaters and socks
we light our winter nights
with static sparks


January 13, 2015

how I love
this meadow picture of you
your hand grazing grass


January 12, 2015

ragged stalks
where the corn maze was
we research nursing homes


January 11, 2015

January 10, 2015

ten days later
we are still busy forgetting
which year this is


January 09, 2015

we sweep the snow
ahead of us as we walk
making room for more


January 08, 2015

January 07, 2015

early storm warning
the nurse tells us
he had a bad night

January 03, 2015

January 02, 2015

our quickening hearts
the moment we realize
the bat is inside


January 01, 2015

the front yard bunny
shares not one resolution —
New Year’s Day
