Natural Interlude

Glancing up from the page
through a picture window

Wind gusts on pond water
fanning out like fireworks

Grateful to be indoors
I wonder what happens

To bees, birds and beasts
when weather turns harsh

Now spit spots of raindrops
pock the surface

Deer-trimmed cedars cling to the shore
lashed by wind

Shivering I pick up my pen
and write
