Jack Frost called today

and a poem by Mr G

Jack Frost called today
Hoar, feathering the trees
crystallising the branches 
crisp and sparkling;
whilst on the ground
dusting, cold fingers
tentacles of ice
flitting over plant leaves
and remnant flowers 
who catch their breath
before sleeping.
Snow may follow,
as nature wraps
its winter blanket.
Embracing hibernation.

Not dead, not dying
but waiting.

[Mr G. 11th December 2022]
