March thaw--
on a sofa left for trash
sits melting snow

    winter mourns -
    rummaging through the trash
    he tries the jacket on

    In the courtyard
    a carrot and two courtyard:
    the former snowman

    worn blanket -
    springs arrival
    even the trees sing

    -

    mist
    sprayed against streaky window --
    clearing in my mind

    -

    sunset
    head in hands --
    music off in the distant
