Serene snow morning in Ireland

Written by: Eiken Laan

Hushed morning.....
A winter scene from my bedroom window
of soft pearled fields sloping to the sea
Rose hips, blood red with white frosting
Naked branches as snow falls from bough to bough
Pale melon sun shines, as a thaw struggles in

A steel grey sky mirrors a stilled ocean
Shadows of Spruce elongate the milk carpet
Pistachio ivy clings to the tree trunks 
freezing fog lingers, the feeble sun waning
as a blackbird hops, mirabelle beak pecking
