Winter mornings

wake silvered white

Lawns are slivers

of spiked grass


Frosted opaque windows

Ice coated pavements

Feet stamp,

sliver and slide

Frozen ponds are

panes of glass

Icicles hang dagger-like,

then drip in the thaw


Cars stall, trains halt 

Buses are snowed in

Winter, when sometimes

Everything stops

And time stands still

◄ Silence

The Turbulent Sea ►

You conjure winter in the pared back dictionn and direct imagery
Lawn are slivers
Of spiked grass
I really enjoyed this Brenda.
