Dripping winter crystals,

Coat buttons of various design

Sewed for red eared, bright eyed boy

Who happily told summer goodbye.

Dried quills,

Postal service turned molasses,

No letters from brother…

Cinnamon rolls and red, green, decorations.

Snowy clouds of heaven,

Small dots falling in a unique formation.

Sled slides down a hill of forgotten sentiment

Falling down out of eyesight, past the horizon.

Wonderland daydreams,

Furry winter monsters,

Using igloo’s as hideouts.

River ice and dancing girl

Porcelain face and baby curls.

Using the morning sun as a spotlight-

Red eared boy hides amongst the tree shadows,

Avoiding the scene but watching intently

It was too beautiful to interrupt,

Night falls, boy leaves,

His yard resembles a swampy meadow of sludge-

Too much play yet not enough

Inside he wets the floor with boots

Mom cooks chicken,

Dad brings the wood in.

Home warm for tonight.

Quilts cover thankful bodies,

Snow piles high

Then daylight breaks

Boy runs outside,

Green scarf latches on to his neck as he flies by-

Out the door for another adventure

Boy runs back to the icy river:

There's a break in the ice

Baby curls had drowned last night…

Face unrecognizable-

Covered with winter crystals

The boy cries and his lips feel like icicles

Nearby a crow screams and the monster wind whistles.

Summer memory laughs and whispers, “I told you winter was evil.”
