Prayers of the Winter Trees

Prayers of the Winter Trees

Donned in white prayer’s dress,
trees pause before the long pray,
as the morning walker admires

bright jewels on their heads.
What might they harbor in their
white coats?

A squirrel
peeps out
from its tree home, like
a shivering child begging for coins.

Have you mailed the check yet?
The trees taunt low.
Holiday dinner ought to be in time.

Hurrying down the trail,
listen to them pray for
the winter creatures and all.
