Winter Loneliness

Stars swirl in a midnight winter sky,

and the forest tiptoes through the darkness,

aware only of itself.

My owl friends have returned.

Their voices give life to this night’s deep darkness,

while in the distance a fox barks back to them in welcome,

his winter loneliness forgiven.
