When the Door Closes

My secret life as a poet, writer, photographer…



Gray Though the Winter – a Tanka

Gray Though the Winter

Gray though the winter,
its muted sun dampened by
drizzles, defiant
sprigs glisten in the garden –
bare-limbed but for sprouts of green.

Nestled within
velvet mews,
filaments crowd
with new year’s hopes imbued
but fruition’s months away
or years or maybe null
for progress buzzes in some
gardens but not all.
