Winter Trees

Bare bone trees
Stripped of leaves
Stand stalwart through winter’s cold

Recall spring’s tender greens
Full of new life, fresh energy

Remember summer’s robust leaves
Flower and fruit gifting life

Recollect fall’s brilliant colors
Red, gold, orange, yellow

Gray limbs against a gray sky
With life’s energy dimmed
Rise confident yet
Rebirth anticipated.
