Frosty Hats

Faded pink roses covered in frost

pink cottage roses
frosty hats at rakish angles
sporting the first frost

Notes: Winter has skated into town on frozen sidewalks, catching some late blooms off guard. They are rising to the occasion, though. I hope you’re having a magical week.

Season of Thanks


Thankful for summer —
fragrant with cottage roses
climbing a stone wall.

Multicolored Maple leaf in fall

Thankful for autumn’s
brilliant multi-colored leaves
that spin, curl and fall.

pond life under ice

Thankful for winter —
sledding and skating on mill ponds,
made smooth with ice.


Thankful for spring
when bulbs and roots create
flower paradise.

Note: Here is a thankful poem in recognition of Thanksgiving, a time when we celebrate what the earth gives us. This is my contribution for Poetry Friday hosted this week by Miss Rumphius Effect.
