Passing Clouds.


Birds prefer a heavy dew to

 ice cold rigors of a sudden

snap it helps them brave

an arctic breath which saps


As if to celebrate this Celsius

shift a starling sits upon

a stark-branched tree

to serenade a dankish world


Late December mists and

tree-lined silhouettes every

passing mood of nature is a

poem waiting to be found

I also liked the imagery here. And as you suggest, hard not to write about this sort of thing at this time of year. Nice piece. Win

A nice poem, you do internal rhyming well. I'm not so keen on some of the line breaks and rhythmically I thought you could do without withered or stark-branched.
