Frost Enchants


Frost Rimed leaf

Thousands of frost stars
Twinkle on every fallen leaf.
The sky is an aching blue.
Balsam intermingles with spruce.
Diamond dust paves the autumn path
With glinting winter magic:
Sparkles in each sunlit step.
In shade, the wildwood is quiet.
Cold frost rimes the fallen log.
Breath is visible, and runners steam.
One ray of weak sun is enough to
Blind, dazzling the senses.

  1. I was reading your comments, which heartened me a bit, Brenda! I think your words flow so well on your posts, lyrically and poetically. It makes me ‘take comfort’ to know it doesn’t always come out easily. You give us such wonderful treats, Brenda! This process would make me struggle to do this, so often as you do!


    • It’s in the struggle that character can shine through. 🙂 You should keep after it, Robin. I would love to read some of your poetry. Thanks for your kind words on mine. It’s not an easy world for poets, but I can’t help being one. It’s part of who I am, and I’ve been writing poetry since I was in elementary school. God love them, my kids all write beautiful poetry, too.
