don’t taste the slush


gutter drips

january thaw

snow piles are shrinking away

sun warms bare branches of naked trees

dirt exposed




Like cinquain: 5 lines, but “oddly”modified syllable pattern (see previous post).

Linking to Tony’s “meeting the bar” challenge at  d’VersePoets!

    Totally reminds me of today… lots of sun was a nice break, tho still kinda chilly.
