Winter Changes

A cold winter’s day;
The weak heat and faint light
Of a watery sun,
Fail to loosen
The hold of last night’s freeze
On the exposed land.
In dense clusters
Collages of ice-limned leaves
Crackle underfoot.
Then, into the quiet;
Shifting sounds all around -
Surfaces soften.
With quickening warmth,
Something inside responds;
My heart too, lightens.
