Playing in the snow
To shake off cabin fever
Shoveling a path
From the door to the mailbox
I found out there was no mail

Returning inside
I turned on the computer
Entered my password
Found there were no messages
And then crawled into a book

I thought about you
Lost in your ruminations
Busy with your life
But sharing with a stranger
Memories of yesterday

Canna Lilies Smiling Up at the Sun
by Diane Dube Lindblade
The Silence

I feel the silence
Of the sleeping house at dawn
Orange horizon
Through the winter’s naked trees
As I gaze out the window

White flowers of frost
Form a frame around each pane
Tiny works of art
Suburban winter landscapes
My private art museum

A bright orange ball
Slowly rises through the trees
I can’t help smiling
Imagining you see this
From your home so far away
Crocus (haiku)

New flowers blossom
Where in the fall they wilted
Through the melting snow

It's a Beautiful Day

Fishing On The South Point Of The Big Island

The Love We Share

Silent snowflakes fall
Collecting in still corners
Covering the earth
Forming a smooth white surface
Reflecting the fading light

Afternoon daydream
An echo of your laughter
And screams of delight
As you hurtle through the snow
Before tumbling off the sled

I still miss those days
Laughter and hot chocolate
Sitting by the fire
Steaming socks and popping wood
And warmed by the love we share
