Flash
They don’t have the flash
of gaudy summer,
but the winter seeds and trees have 
a poignant beauty of their own.
Shapely.
Sculptural.
Poised,
posing for the camera.
They don’t have the nectar
to entice the sugar lovers,
but there’s food
in their seeds,
made
ready for spreading
and rebirth
in another place and time.
They don’t have the flash
of gaudy summer
but see them
glisten
and sparkle
with wet spiders webs
and jewelled
water drops
to light up the dark days.
And later,
glisten
with sugar like
frosty coating.
Still shapely.
Sculptural.
Poised and ready
to face the inevitable
decay.
