Cold

As the temperatures hover near 20 below, I snuggle by my fireplace and think of summer’s glow.

surrounded by cold
white-winged snowfinch fluffs feathers
eyes closed fast asleep

~~~

during winter storm
icy snow torn from its banks
-nature’s throw pillows

~~~

winters whitest ice
burns all the flesh it touches
without yellow flame

approaching sunset
the world grows so much colder
birds can’t bear to sing

                ~

coldest wintertime
is covered with morning frost
-future dreams below

               ~

gritty winter frost
covers the tall prairie grass
hiding shadow’s song
