Winter solstice 2020

 

13/12/2020 dream haiku
small hours of Sunday morning

family’s little strength
guarded
for mourning

 

17/12/2020

still growing
on old apple treeβ€”
mistletoe

 

21/12/2020

the peanut feeder
disappears β€”
flap of crows wings

 

21/12/2020

scuffed oak leaves
muddy track
futile acorn hunt

 

21/12/2020
above Amroth

soggy cornflakes
skeletal oak leaves
sprouting acorn
