From Autumn Opens a Door, poetry collection published in fall, 2015.


In the fall
all the extra is peeled away.
The wind takes.
The cold bites off the fat
and leaves the bone.

  1. Yes. I am doing these poems in alphabetical order but it’s amazing how often they are applicable to the day I set them for… And we are in a chilly phase, feels wintery!

  2. If I wasn’t a vegetarian I ‘d gnaw on this one , but seriously I like this take on winter very much..I just do… and the art has an intriguing quality as well which goes with the poem.

  3. Thank you. I think of winter as the time when all that is hidden is often revealed. And thank you for the mention of the art – I think the ATC format is fantastic, almost like writing a little haiku in paint or paper. You have to distill your thoughts.

  4. Interesting that observation about winter…I find February and March (late winter) often ‘revealing’. I gather an ATC is quite small…you still managed to include much detail.
