Tuesday Morning

Fine network of tree branches

Appears at a black sky

A smell of plastic — I wonder why

The lunar face will shrink by tranches



I heard the familiar hammer

Yesterday 😮 January

What plan has the Programmer,

Starting so early?



One of Winter’s joys:

The familiar, huge celestial body,

Though the council deploys

A good lantern system for everybody


Midwinter Days

Two weeks around 21 December

Always dark, as long as I remember

Yet, so satisfied about many things

Busy improving what still clings



The dark days started a month ago

Yet, each afternoon, outdoors is the place to go
