Winter Bare

A bare tree
wrestles with fog
branches antlers engaged

Stark grim hills
take quiet bets
on who will win

Black birds blazing snow
too busy debating
miss all the action

A stern father
burning at noon
declares a no decision

While the river
stays frozen
in smug resolve

a solitary figure
walks the river, not feeling
cold or alone

sketching the wonder
of winter without any brush
entering the scene

then disappearing
