the deepening stars
the moon on its ancient watch
the gift of the year

day 175

3:02 pm December 30, 2010
one small bud showing
near the bottom of the bush,
unseen, ungifted

9:50 am December 28, 2010
the lake gives the sky
its own image reflected
(same gift as last year)

day 172

11:37 am December 27, 2010
unexpected gift
of sunlight’s faint touch across
the cold distances

day 171

1:03 pm December 26, 2010
the gift of slow light:
the shapes of things, the colors,
given every day

day 170

12:29 pm December 25, 2010
the happy, the sad,
the gifts they gave, amidst piles
of wrapping paper

day 169

12:10 pm December 24, 2010
teenage girl standing
bent over her own shadow
hands drawn up, texting

day 168

9:55 am December 23, 2010
morning parking lot
the same empty glass strewn space
the same mouse carcass
