Winter Thaw

Here is my poem, “Winter Thaw.”  It was published today in the Post Bulletin.  It was nice and warm this January 19th, 2015, and I hope the poem leaves you feeling winter warm.

Winter Thaw


One warm day

after January’s

deep cold,

a bold

warm sigh


in a sweet

warm up.


The sun



and we walk

without coats.


The breeze

lifts us,

and we float

in such warm

winter weather.

I pass a pine tree


with winter’s tears.


She cries for leaving.

Good-bye winter grieving.

I fly free

in one winter thaw.

Its soupy slush

gives way to a gush of hope.

I smell mud

and imagine the buds

still sleeping, but dreaming of pink.
