Sipping strong hot coffee
while peering through the window;
Scraggly hair and sleep filled eyes;
Dreams still fading in the fog.
Leafless trees hibernate
storing energy for Spring;
Dormant grass hangs on to green;
Bird feeders full of diners
Lack of cover lets me see
the pruning that’s still needed;
Clipping off the life impeding;
Trim the wood that won’t bear fruit.
