Ronovan’s Haiku Challenge #127 – Kiss/Taste
As I went to morning coffee, the temperature reading in my car was -10 degrees Fahrenheit.
Winter’s bitter kiss
Offered with frost covered lips
Stole my taste for life
“Ormsby – Just defrost and serve!”
Withered by the wind
Then burned by an early frost
Beauty holds my gaze
Solitary pine silhouette in sky,
Splitting the dark horizon, anticipating sun.
Morning frost daubs crystal stars
Witnessing dawn’s soft magenta rise.
