in the old forest
a woodpecker taps for worms –
far, a semantron


freshly fallen dew –
on the field of red poppies
a million suns


snow on the fir trees –
the hissing scintillation
of the hatchet’s blade


winter’s private stash
of sweet-scented summer dreams –
a frozen rosebud


on the wooden bridge –
snowflakes like cherry petals
swirling and swirling

I am a freelance writer, poet, content editor, and blogger. I also manage "The BeZine" thebezine.com and its associated activities and The Poet by Day jamiededes.com, an info hub for writers meant to encourage good but lesser-known poets, women and minority poets, outsider artists, and artists just finding their voices in maturity. The Poet by Day is dedicated to supporting freedom of artistic expression and human rights. Email thepoetbyday@gmail.com for permissions, commissions, or assignments.
