Early Spring Snowfall Covers Backyard Landscape
Shape Shifting Night
The morning shares its stillness
as the edges of the oaks emerge.
Squiggly black lines drawn
against the deep blue sky.
The woods shape shift,
awakening into the inky twilight.
The red fox’s paw left its signature
in the newly fallen snow.
He knows where to find movement
hidden in the darkness.
The vigilant fox becomes the early crow,
cawing a message that light is coming.
