Flash

 

They don’t have the flash

of gaudy summer,

but the winter trees have

a poignant beauty of their own.

Shapely.

Sculptural.

Poised,

posing for the camera.

 

They don’t have the nectar

to entice the sugar lovers,

but there’s food

in their seeds,

made

ready for spreading

and rebirth

in another place and time.

 

They don’t have the flash

of gaudy summer

but see them

glisten

and sparkle

with wet spiders webs

and jeweled

water drops

to light up the dark days.

And later,

glisten

with sugar like

frosty coating.

Still shapely.

Sculptural.

Poised and ready

to face the inevitable

decay.
