Winter Dawn


In first wintry morning light
The window sill peeling paint
Has grown a beard of ice
Overnight. Glacial darkness
Now is luminous chill. Wan
Beams bounce about, silent.
Walls, doors, bed, and sofa
Glow like the full moon.
Hidden behind the horizon, a lantern
Reddens the sky, blue and gray.
Winsome, time turns, smiles
For the photographer, who
Traps the moment in amber
As eternity enters the room.
