Winter Window (2)

(Here’s where I am, trying to capture that moment in words, still playing, feedback welcome)

Winter Window After Rain

Birch twigs fanning, falling

Entangled bare umbrella spokes

Auburn leaves still trembling

Elfin laundry forgotten on the line

Or summer tunes we try to keep alive

Crystal-beaded curtains

Catch reflections upside down

And just when we forget to hope

New seasons come cascading out

Green jackpot fountains

No telling how or why
