Stone-cold sun, scruffy clouds,

ghost of snow not falling down,

rain falling upside down.


Freeze Breeze

Relentless cool draft

full of rain swept all day long.

Spring was an illusion.

Smells like spring

Raindrops didn’t reach the ground.

Sun shines. Cold wind brushed but ceased.

The air is full of spring.


Morning mist wears thin,

ghostly vapour lingers

in the winter dawn.

Midnight Winter Chill

Shivers shoot up bare skin

when a gust of cold wind blows

in the moonless winter night.
