snow-covered branches 
match the buttercream frosting
on mini cupcakes
 
gray sky, white landscape
a grim world’s transformation
for the holidays
 
gingerbread cookies 
mimic fresh snow
on trees and houses

subway in motion 
wheels sing lullabies
passengers fall asleep
 
vapor clouds 
rise from my teapot
winter cold blues

extreme sunshine 

tints the scenery
with glare
gray leaves  gray puddles
gray chill underneath
gray cardigan
 
behind Brooklyn Bridge 
walls of gray mist hide skyline
delusional rain
 

silhouette patterns 

washi paper made from sky
ailanthus collage
 

rain forgives anger
when it falls with grace and hope

water heals the land
courage replants, life renews
the earth and sun in balance
