Rabbit rind of moon left


over winter's dawn after


the longest night.






Desert broom floats out


white drifting seeds, December's


substitute for snow.




Stone walls outlast us.


Mountains outlast the wall


Moon wins over mountain.




Chinaberry tree


elegant in winter grey,


jeweled with clustered gold.




Dawn discus of moon


arced west into indigo


slips silver to shade.

The black mares of night

paw at the dusk rim of moon,

waiting for horsemen.

-

ice crystal stars cut

facets into winter's rim,

dawn rings on the edge
