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.
