Stripped branches strain back,

defiance proving futile.

Wind always prevails.

A hook-tooth protrudes.

A lupine snarl. My dog, rapt

in ancestral dreams.

the question mark curves

                                      towards a neat conclusion

From a sandstone cell,

incoming twilight and tide:

reluctant escape.

Faint opalescence

relieves blue monotony.

Fragment of day-moon.

Wild grape hyacinth

weighted with buttered fragrance

invites a response.

Sleeping buds unclench

Safe from the fangs of the frost.

This year’s first warm day.
