Winters Coat

Put on your winters coat

and wait awhile.

Catch the breeze,

the scent of resting hedgerow

as cold nights give way

to short days of bright blue skies

and a promise of spring.

My eye rests on a robin,

a radiant chest of health aglow

to all the possibilities of a New Year.

We catch each other’s thoughts

and then she flies,

her wings catching the currents

as she ebbs ever forward.
