Frigid weather with gritty graupels welcome winter. Rivulets of raucous rain freeze without cease or halt. Overly willful waterfalls splatter and splinter. Zealous spirits scatter shards with turbulent thrust fault Emerging brush tips turn tourmaline in the hinter. Neither dream nor prayer can cease the arctic assault. Soon all within sight is frozen as solid as steel. Only constant currents course beneath the sea’s surface. Life lies limpid and sleeps till spring thaw offers repeal. Inhospitable season’s side effects soon lose face. Days of sizzling sunshine offer auspicious appeal. 30 November 2022 Pick-A-Title, Vol 33 Poetry Contest Sponsored by Edward Ibeh

This is wonderful Linda, I too love the coursing currents underneath, great imagery. It is -30 C here today (before the wind chill) so this feels incredibly timely as well haha! Good luck to you in the contest!

Linda, I at first noticed all your wonderful alliteration and precise vocabulary, then the complete picture really struck me ... you've succeeded in giving us a frigid picture. Plus, I learned "graupel" today! Very nice, thank you. Dave

Very nice, Linda - I like this! I love how there's always water moving underneath the ice, a whole world we can't see sometimes.
