TOO SOON!

Thrown into winter
Windy, snowy, freezing cold
Shiver me timbers

Hide and Seek

I caught a whiff of spring yesterday ~
Efforts to capture its fleeting essence
Were for naught.
Freshness escorted by bird ballads
replaced by cold rain and squally winds.

Winds threaten spring again today ~
We are enrobed by a diaphanous cape of fog.
Spring plays hide and seek
But I will keep looking ~
even if I have to count to one thousand and sixty-two.

Frozen Souls

 

Sadness permeates

Frozen winter souls

A warm thaw of hope

Melts the core ~

Frightening Cold

 

Icicles frozen

Mid-drip; mid-winter stretches

Hostile tentacles.

Bloody freaking freezing cold

A cold of many faces

Snow crisp underfoot

Leaves no tracks; no evidence

That Santa was here

Simple Pleasures

The chill in my bones

Is warmed by hot chocolate

Whipped cream on my nose

Bracing cold winds blow

Sun hides, peeking out shyly

Embrace November

Miserable

Noses

Throat sore and raw edged

Head overcast, clogged proboscis

Cold chills tingling spine
