Solstice 2008

snow ice clear white
short day long night
day sun ice melt
night freeze re-ice
shoes crunch snow
feet slide ice
hope bright sun melt
soon come rain clean
children warm play sleigh
grandpa watch
      in cold feet

Listening to Sarabande from Bach's 2nd Cello Suite

Casals growling strings
green cypress branches windblown
      outside kitchen window
1936 recording reaches me in 21st century
from Abbey Road London to Stroud Avenue
gray December afternoon
