Frostbitten – Tanka

frostbitten

 

Sharp icicle teeth

Bite and tear at fragile blooms,

Death stalks the garden.

Plants succumb to icy barbs

As frozen petals harden.

 

Glist’ning ‘neath the frost,

Dressed in glittered finery,

Flowers splendid still;

For all the death Winter brings,

Beauty reigns despite the chill.
