Winter Garden

The garden looks lifeless

in February's cold

and long deep frost


twigs and branches stripped

by shifting freezing winds

now seem silent sentinels


but to unburdened plants this time

of freedom from the weight

of flowers and fruit


gives time to swirl and tum

and twirl a dance of joy

unfettered in the breeze
