Hoarfrost

image

Frosted trees,
iced like pastries
in a shop window.
Wintery white
shot through
with glitter
and the world becomes
something else entirely.
Hoarfrost hangs
from heavy branches
whose frozen fingers
brush the snow.

==============

I think
hoarfrost has encased
my heart.
Frozen memories
trap me like tree limbs
handcuffed in ice.
Like the world,
I can’t shake
the heavy fog
obscuring my view
of the future.
