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
