FIELD NOTES:

Look at winter
With winter eyes
As smoke curls from rooftops
To clear cobalt skies.

Breathe in winter
Past winter nose:
The sweet scent of black birch
Where velvet moss grows.
 

Walk through winter
With winter feet
On crackling ice
Or sloshy wet sleet.

Look at winter
With winter ears:
The rustling of oak leaves
As spring slowly nears.
