Mind of Winter

I.

creation’s unfinished and god is still resting:

blackbirds gossip all day of what’s left to be done

II.

spruces draw us in, their charcoal hearts visible:

trees embraced by white birds, their wings the shape of snow

III.

plowed fields release colour to show birds the wind:

how its blades hedgerow paths for the flight of snow

IV.

that fluid edge of distance may just be water:

and in winter, it is – leaving us to dig bridges

V.

black branches hold the night all day against the sun:

dark falls: the slowest passion of the horizon

—Jane Ledwell, from Last Tomato, Acorn Press, 2005

Island poet and avid poetry reader Judy Gaudet selects a poem by a PEI poet each month.
