Flakes at work, building a new world
as tracks mark the response.
Slippery sled rides, carefree foot slides,
recreating, navigating, diamond delight.
Ice encases all in porcelain glaze.
Brilliant berries emerge, branches extend
pungent sustenance to weary wildlife.
Violas peek, searching for sanctuary.
Sun’s rays soften the blanket.
Frigid nights invite unbalancing, black ice.
Its ready bludgeon catches the incautious.
Fog…impressionist painter, mutes the scene.
Crystal pirouettes chase
homeward bound silhouettes.
Fireside respite escorts dreams
of swiftly sliding into Spring.
