no longer flow together

lonely in the frost

 

lonely in the frost

the crunch of white grass stays

long after

Frosty Eyes

 

winter starts

to blink this sleepy solstice

from frosty eyes

 

from frosty eyes

a silver squirrel sees new year

blink a little

Skeletons of streets

When the phosphor of deep frost

And the moon conspire
