From the book Count Syllables on Your Fingers, 2020.
Leaves fell. Scrub
died back. Now I see
dark bare trees
how they do
raise their shapely arms how they
do finger the sky

a nuanced tirade
wearing a blue velvet dress.
its nap stands on end
her hands smooth it. Springing back
she hardly stops to draw breath

I love seeing the shapes of trees in winter (one of the few things I love about winter…) (K)
I like winter for many reasons, but seeing the trees with their forms revealed, more and more, is something I look forward to.
Vivid images! The velvet dress particularly stays in my mind!
Thank you. You know, I have loved velvet since I was little though I believe the closest I have come to having a velvet garment is velveteen dresses ( my sister and I had same fabric different styles) when I was maybe 6. Still…there is still time…
