Cold blue rebirth
remains at sprawling winter rest
while frends shadow joy-dancing
blend hot brilliant breath
with wet ears and sharp teeth.
Missing eyebrows
gift of time
one slow termite stroke
now surely would show surprise
as this true sentinel
centuries trapped in withered paint
witness of growth and loss
remains momentarily

While wondering what a house filled with snow looks like, Teke pauses his play to scrutinize the framing.  Took three hours of shoveling to clear the interior of snow, and of course Teke helped......make a mess while I shovelled.

Looking mighty fine, must admit, all windows in, front stairs replaced, new roof on porch and half story side.  This picture was taken a month after the top one, and reflects almost two years of work.
