Powdered Boughs

Powdered Boughs short poem

Photo by Wonderlane 

Evergreens iced at river’s frozen brim
December’s breath stills the burdened limb
Powdered boughs winter in floral dream
Recalling sweet temperate summer’s stream
Where nymphs dimpled warm aqueous skin
How frigid the vein now that wears stone thin
But beneath bitter blanket of white is clear
The faint melody of cherished pulse is dear
