January in Georgia


January in Georgia
An ancient pecan tree whirls its skirt of branches
Against a misty morning sky
Mistletoe barrette firmly in place
Wild cherry along the fence row
Evergreen honeysuckle in a thick bough
Cat brier hangs as weathered tinsel.
A mockingbird noisily announces his domain
The ground is wet from the melted frost
Gray, burnt orange and tan
Grasses lying on the ground
Yellow cherry leaves whistling like flags in the breeze
With winter so brief
