cold night
the street vendor hands me
a roasted chestnut

    cold evening--
    the newspaper seller
    reading a florida pamphlet

    Long awaited spring
    Flowers bent in thankful pose
    Life's resurrection.

    cape cod nor'easter--
    my cottage afloat
    in drifting snow

    pouring down rain
    didn't dampen our spirits
    ...anniversary in Carmel

    enjoyed the contrast of cold and warmth in this & especially liked the power and possibilities in the verb.

    In the dark of night
    the light of a lampstreet
    gathers butterflies

    winter hot chestnuts
    the discovery how cold
    being penniless can be

    eating boiled peanuts --
    in the rain
    steam rising
    from the kettle
