Trees in Winter

7 Jan

Seasonings

.

Are they really lifeless

these empty arms

of winter

branching leafless

in naked grace?

Gaia says no,

that deep in frozen dreams

a memory thickens,

sweet syrup

of another time gone

and dreams to come.

Till then these aching limbs

reach out to the silence,

bare

but not barren.
