Winds of change

image

Sudden blizzard

unleashes ghostly breath

misting in deathly white

hurling frozen fistfuls

to angry winds

until new day dawns

a fresh crystal blanket

christening

each tree, each post

wedding white

burying all remains—

not lost, just waiting

to be uncovered

by wind and sun.

  1. That is a chilly Quadrille, Janice, with pictures to match! You’ve described a real winter, a satisfying winter – and I love the lines:
    ‘Sudden blizzard
    unleashes ghostly breath’
    and
    ‘hurling frozen fistfuls
    to angry winds’.
