A Serpent’s tail poem for the Secret Keeper’s writing prompt. This week’s words:
STEP | TREAT | COLD | HOLE | PEEL
I step in time to the winter song,
long as the night and just as old,
cold as the wind that peels the skin.
Thin ice on the pond where deer come to drink,
brink of day I make a hole, a watering place,
graced by dog rose, red-hipped, a treat.
Greeting the sun in the morning sky,
I step in time to the winter song.
