Winter Rules

Winter Winds


Here comes the wind

Not the balmy wind of Spring

Not the sweaty wind of Summer,

Not the  vigorous wind of Fall


Winter rules with biting grasp

Tangling around  throat

Bitter fingers of ice steal breath

With every exhilation

Sidewalks and roads slick as glass

Waiting till a pale sun arrives

To melt it all

  1. Beautiful, and season appropriate. 🙂

  2. Our lake froze over – first time I’ve ever seen one! … The wind off that much ice was … impressive!

    A frozen lake must be a very pretty site, clean glittery white.
