Frozen - a Collaboration With Michelle Mac Donald

The frozen sap of mirthless trees, The fractured flow of icy streams. The howling wind that claws at life, The forest shrouded in endless white. Skeletal ice hangs from warm lit homes, ....brittle fingers, glacial bones! Gibbous moon with light unclean, Casting shadows barely seen. Wide tongues of sleet lick hands and feet, Frost etched people on lacquered streets. Witches Sabbat the darkest rite, All doors are barred on Halloween night! Children sleeping, tucked tight in bed, While witches brooms fly overhead. Cock’s crow sounds in the dark of night, Putting the cabal to frenzied flight! The children waken then start to yawn, Their smiling faces greet the new dawn.

Thanks for sharing this... exposing your thoughts through your unique poetic style. Meanwhile, I greet you with the love of the Lord, expressed by John 3:16 of the Bible, "For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life." Be blessed.

Hey Shane, I hope I haven't frozen the ink in your pen.:( I hear the Madhatter, is now hatless; needs your to help find it. I don't have kaleidoscope eyes, you know?:) It's only Uncle Sam who can keep track of you, and the Soup A-hole, I suppose. =/ He is certainly stalking me.
