A Winter Day

Rating: 4.9
I think you know that this is winter day.
This time last year woodsmoke blew us away.
Frost wrote the poem on tall panes of gray.

That was the morning of the yellow finch,
A dropp of sun upon a garden bench.
Light raised the bird's momentum, inch by inch.

You held your coffee cup up to the sky,
Promised as long as yellow birds could fly,
This anniversary would never die

Again, there is that shrp edge on you beautiful nature poems. This time I had to wait unitl the last line. It takes an extra abount of skill to do both in one poem. Several of my favorite poets deal with this duality of nature and humanity: Robert Frost, Robinson Jeffers and you. Tom

You should be regularly published in a West Virginia travel magazine because I never wanted to see the state until I started reading you. Blessings, Bill Grace

I love your use of words to make moving pictures and again all of your years of living shared. I am referring to 'woodsmoke blew us away' 'A dropp of sun upon a garden bench' and 'Light raised the bird's momentum, inch by inch'. Thanks for this winter glimpse.
