sleeps and, now and then, twitches
dreaming of youth's birds

feathers, rain-heavy
winter bird, still on cold ground
frozen from free flight

thinning winter's trees
stickly branches raise dry palms
thirsting for spring's alms

wet, wintry leaf's fall
on cold earth, compost to come
nourish the next spring
