144 Syllables On A Winter Morning


I sit in a chair,

Looking out the window, at the trees,

The long black branches, bare of any leaves

Images of tropical cities fill my mind

Scraps of paper lie to the left of me, notes of a poet's imagination

I begin to feel the cold

A house stares back at me, windows empty

Nobody moves

The wind blows heavily against the walls of what I call home

Howling, bellowing, beckoning

Sounds of distressed songbirds distantly arise

Frost covered fields, a frozen lake

White sky

A clean slate

The wind blows through the trees

Silently calling

Howling, bellowing, beckoning...

Amongst the flowers I
am alone with my pot of wine
drinking by myself; then lifting
my cup I asked the moon
to drink with me, its reflection
