January

        I                                                                               

Perfect day to knit
weatherman says don’t go out
joyful Snow Day


II


Heads tucked under wings
geese sit on the frozen lake
brown pillows on ice


III

Her wondering mind
confused and miserable
walking a sad dog


IV

Fog covers all things
drawing us into stillness
no wind no traffic


V

                                  A Resolution                                    
                  poetry for the New Year                   
                     write Haiku daily    
                           


VI

Storm the Capitol
insurrection is here now
violent horror


Defeated man hides

as hateful war continues
in his heart of fear


Democracy stands
congress confirms a president

freedom is alive


VII


In the aftermath
they said election was rigged
the nation is numb


VIII

Rain on dirty snow
definitely looks like March
think of Spring today


IX


Virus dominates

likely worse before better
U.S. waits   masks on


 X
 

White Stone Intention
one word of many: Focus
settled Mind Body


 XI
 
In the waiting room
gratitude for gift given
cornea transplant


XII


By the grace of God
the love has not been in vain
I am what I am.

                        … 1 Corinthians 15:10


XIII


History making
the president’s impeachments
our nation survived


XIV


20,000 Troops
while insurgents threaten war

inauguration


XV


How do I write it
it’s agoraphobia
walking into fear


XVI


Pines sway in the breeze
scene out the window   wet snow
wait for the bright sun
