Winter Post

More Ducks than could be counted arrived via post
Dust colored and intent on destination
Meted out across the front of the card
They fly now in perpetuity across the mantle
Inside diminutive words of Christmas cheer

Outside the solitary pink rose resides
In the warm coastal winter of the wetlands
Through my window it communicates to me
And only to me as we are now allies —
Sisters waiting for Spring to arrive
