January Snow and ‘Winter Trees’

The snows have come lightly this year.  It is silent and cold, but a joy to see.

Winter Trees

All the complicated details
of the attiring and
the disattiring are completed!
A liquid moon
moves gently among
the long branches.
Thus having prepared their buds
against a sure winter
the wise trees
stand sleeping in the cold.

    The wise trees stand in the cold for years and on silently watching us.

    You are as wise as those trees.
