December's Fury - Poem by Heather Burns

Icicles
inter-lace
branches

weaving
myst erious
patterns

isolated
in winters
clutch

trees stand
barren
stark naked

trembling
bodies hover
together

searching
for an
escape

December's
fury lashes
out.

    This is a fine poem succinct in structure, empathy and solid imagery. I invite you to read my poem of similar form - Promises. (Report) Reply

    December's icy tears; empty, temptuous, coldly endeared
    winds whip lips, tip ships, and icy flips
    We bundle, stiff fingers fumble, but we persevere. (Report) Reply
