Cold morning

frozen roses

And all the roses frozen
caught tight in winter’s tide
the soft white fur belies
the death inside
touched by cold sun
softening worm-brown

I used to do lots of things I didn't much enjoy. Now I am officially a writer. It's what I always wanted to be.

  1. Wow – that is gorgeous. I just watched some Disney movies about fairies with my six-year-old, and apparently, frost can protect things from the ice and cold!


    1. It’s funny, I heard something similar just recently, I think it was about protecting fruit trees from frost by spraying them with water in the evening. The ice that forms keeps the buds warm. Weird, but then, nature is wonderful 🙂
