a cold touch of heart
the empty whiteness of eyes
nothing green survives

sudden disturbance
yesterday now tomorrow
nothing audible

before you know it
this verdant transformation
and bright warm blue sky

the northern god speaks
his breath cool and threatening
a shiver – goose bumps

    Feeling like Frosty, huh Daver?:) Thank goodness we've no carrot noses. You've painted a vista that feels very much like ours here. Love the imagery you've used, it can bring cold shivers into the minds and limbs of many. It's no wonder why some snowpeople have hats and scarves. Love, Mikki
