LICHEN & LATE WINTER    February 10, 2022                                              

LICHEN and LATE WINTER by Catherine Young are from her poetry collection Geosmin.

LICHEN decorates the bark like a living gift wrapping, one that’s hard to put in the woodstove.

LATE WINTER in Wisconsin is the difficult time of freeze and thaw; an anxious dance. We want the melt, but not all at once!
