Hello winter

“. . . open your eyes wide and actually see this world by attending to its colors, details and irony.”― Orhan Pamuk

December Solstice

Winters breathe
appeared
in gusty waves
painted each plant
with frosty tips
nipping them back
clear to their roots.

Dried and crispy leaves
make their slow
earthly descent
bare the fruit
for the birds
newly revealed
playground.
