As the weather turns colder…

December

this is the time of ice, of hungry birds,

give broken bread so they may come –

crows slip on the tops of walls,

puffed pigeon risk a cat-watched lawn

 

everything

( whisper it )

is about

loving

and

not-loving

 

this is a time of dilemmas

whether to give or not,

does it matter or not,

looking for meaning

 

everything

( remember it )

is about loving

and not-loving.

(a poem from Rose’s book Taking Flight pub Oversteps Books)
