winter’s daZZle

Link to dVerse Poets where Gina invites us to consider “the magic of ordinary things”


snow diamonds gliTTer in sunshine

icicle daGGers dangle from rOOf edge

pungent scent distiLLs from pine boughs

haPPy laughter sleDDing down big hiLL

soft faux fur hOOd brushes rosy chEEks

snowflakes sprinkle on kniTTed miTTen

cold hands caRReSS warm bowl of hot chili

    a list that brings endless joy and I feel the magic in your words. the rebel use of capitalisation intrigues me. a lovely sensory journey from sight to sound, smell and touch. your snow diamonds really melted my heart.
