Life's rich texture

Thursday spinning, prowling for Friday

Hectic, determined, undeterred

Not caring to be one day

Short of a full week

Long night of a late December

Dark from night,

Light from snow

Short of a full year

Raucous skiing, silent in the woods

Heartbeat, deep breaths in

The twilight reaches out

Short, in a full life


  1. How lovely is this poem, and how particularly satisfying and lovely your last line.

  2. Thanks for stoppy by Roberta, I'm glad you enjoyed this poem.
