collage – frost

Frost - Leaf

an oak leaf
cold serrated
on the ground

in cold crystal
until sun
burns the frost

and chill
like a breath
melts away

Frost - Grass

is impatient
for the sun

the ice
is impermanent

a temporary cell

sun kiss
the day start

2 frosty

raggle taggle
no longer
or reaching high

the cold white
is too strong
it bends them

they lean

the sun
may come too late

if it comes
at all

1 frosty

the white
of the day
is almost blue

the shadow
hues the crystal

the diamond

it looks so pretty

it’s so cold
