    winter morning-
    only paw prints
    in the snow

    just before dawn
    cold darkness --
    submersing my feet

    thus ends the tale
    of a long winter's night

    After the quarrel
    another companionship:
    the winter moon

    long winter's night
    i try warming up myself
    in a cold blanket

    sparrow perched
    on the sign --
    "do not enter"


    afternoon repast -
    her camera snaps
    my lingering thought
