        rained down,
        drooping roses
        turn to the sun

        autumn all around...
        still waiting for the clowns,
        I twiddle my thumb

        no one
        blessing me when
        I sneeze

        in perpetuity...
        migrating betwixt two nations,
        a lone goose

        snowed in...
        where have my friends

        winter rain...
        wetting the sound
        of the bugle


        evening primrose...
        opening silent in twilight
        dies before sunrise

        more apples
        on the ground than
        on the tree

        no one
        came to see me today but
        winter leaves

        dried persimmons
        in the making, hung and
        getting sweeter

        winter fog...
        I know there are beyond

        heavy snow gone...
        the sun moves on my
        painting hand
