A writer inspired by nature and human nature


016There’s nothing like birches and snow. Perfectly captured in poetry! ~ Bette A. Stevens http://www.4writersandreaders.com

who could know then

parchment paper birch

standing bravely white on white,

deep in snow… on snow.

its textured history bared

like ours… in subtle details.

.
.

slow nuanced layers,

peeled away in time… with trust…

from pretense and fear.
.
.
patiently waiting…alone,

hoping our Truth will be found.
