Persephone's Prayers

Watching wind 
of winter
sweep 
through trees
combing leaves
stirring dust 
off Ground
without sound
Half wagon
leaned on wood pile
Arranged with abandon
next to tree
with ladder 
for climbing 
for viewing 
bird's nest
after spring
after snow has 
been shaken 
from wings
Sway of trunks
to east and west
Allows for quiet 
lumbering rest
As Demeter descends
to gather her daughter
Persephone's prayers 
will be answered in
winter.
