Winter Shape Shifts into Spring

Updated: Apr 30


A thick blanket of snow covers backyard bushes. A birdhouse stands ready as plumb snow flakes fall. The first green leaves of daffodils decorate the white landscape.
Early Spring Snowfall Covers Backyard Landscape

Shape Shifting Night


The morning shares its stillness

as the edges of the oaks appear.

Squiggly black lines drawn

against the deep blue sky.


The woods shape shift awake

from the inky darkness.


The red fox’s paw left its signature

in the newly fallen snow.

He knows there is always movement

in the dark


The perceptive fox becomes the early crow

cawing a message that light is coming.
