winter lights

Christmas light strands
hang down dead n'dim
in the north wind

power flickers
with each cold gust

low rumble
out beyond
the curve
blue lights flash
whirl into view

the county plow
pushing back
 deep snow
 and darkness

the Tired Monk


  1. This is visually really stunning, Ollie. I can see it all so clearly.

  2. Brother Ollie,

    I'm quite familiar with that worrying sighting of flashing blue lights in the distance, especially when driving along a countryside road. Always alarming about what might be around the next dark corner.
    Hopefully the arrival of spring time, might remove that sense of constant darkness.


Thanks for helping with the development of Olsonomics.
