Rusting - Poem by Andy Brookes

last December rose
crimson petals
terminal, fall on black earth

rough winds
stripping beauty.
thorns exposed
against jade leaf.

true Winter has not come,
only blue black nights
pin pricked with stars.

ice maidens once danced here
but have fled to polar regions.

flirting with the northern lights
singing fiery songs
in icy winds.

my skates gather dust
a home to cobweb and mice.
their blades rusting
leaving me longing for
an Arctic blast.
