And Through the Woods

Nancy

 

Icy crystals chatter

Glazed branches fret

Winterís proclamation

Attends

A wary shadow

Dark to dark

The quiet flow of cape

 

Half-frozen fingers

Forfeit

Loose the fabricís edge

Guest of weatherís fury

A face

Frosted

Chin to eyebrow

 

Brief the stormís glimpse

He struggles on

 

The small gift

Safe

 

Merry Christmas

Catherine
