Cherita #27

cardinal perched aloft

high above the frosted earth
winter’s snap, an early spring denies

do you curse the cold as humans do
or can you feel the sun more keenly
amidst the spindly bones of trees?


Wintersong-Magnetic Poetry Monday

softly she comes
murmuring on cold
breezes, covering
the earth gently
with thick blankets
of frost…winter calls
every soul to deep peace

when spring follows winter
too soon with greening and
beautiful rose and daffodil blooms
nature secretly longs
for one more frosting

On The Cusp of Spring

buds bloom
on the cusp
as winter looms
a stubborn squatter with a frosty bite

Spring Coup

Ribbons of golden sunlight splay
the shades of gray
as glooming clouds
descend like shrouds.

Her chilling kiss of icy mist
denies our bliss;
Chilled to the bone
we rush for home.

But though the day seems dark and cold
Winter grows old.
Her days are few.
Spring plans a coup!
