Winter morning

images

Silence
before daybreak.
The cold wind holds its breath.
The shadowed river hesitates.
Birdsong.

Birdsong
in the darkness.
Like breath blown on embers
a cold morning glimmers with bright
music.

Light leaks
into the air.
Trees coalesce and clouds
take substance from the twilight
morning.

Like smoke
the early mist
blurs the river bank,drapes
threadbare trees in folds of frosted
silence.
