SHIVERING BONES

winter-1716286_960_720

Soft fleece obscures
Infinite space beyond
And tufts of steel cotton
Dot a silvery horizon
The sun soaked clouds glow
Like stainless steel eyes
As winter peers down
Flaking frosty tears
Over a landscape
Squirming with life
Writhing and thrashing
To maintain its warmth
Until spring awakens
And thaws the ice
From shivering bones
