An allegory of Winter by Ambrogio Lorenzetti

Silent Solstice (Winter Becomes Maine)

sleet against the windowpane,
or maybe a mouse in the wall...

I listen...
but silence knows no direction

heavy pine boughs,
deep in the woods
so quiet, so still
a deer steps...

inside, warm,
the sound of a cat's paw
disturbs very little
as it hunts in a dream
silent as sleet

--Denis Dunn

thinking of N (soul sista!)....who asked her husband to leave her wedding ring in the garden bird bath after she died.  He did....
