To keep away the blues
In all and sundry hues
Aaah! Must be Paradise!!

slips her collar
and frolics in the snow

so happy to visit me
she pees on
and around my boot

writing her name
in the ice of my driveway

Ice Skating

frozen pond..flashes of silver..
bright colors whirling fast..
the sounds of slashing ice
as the skaters move past…
