Winter Moment at a Vermont Inn




Near a window, a silver spoon rests

on a saucer, beside a white teacup.

An old, oak rocking chair

is still. Winter’s evening sun

touches each a little.


As the moon reflects the setting sun,

the objects glow, and deepen.

In dark, snow-quiet air,

I simply stare

at spoon, saucer, cup, and rocking chair.
