Winterized Garden

It took until December for the trees
to lose their leaves. We’ve had a little rain
that brought down ash – particulate debris
from all the awful fires of the fall.
The daytime peaks at 59 degrees
and, finally, we’ve turned the sprinklers off.
We don’t expect big rain or any freeze,
but winter’s here. I’m stuck in my domain.
The days are short and now the yard agrees.
