Cold Comfort

Cold comfort, this:
Snow slides down to the berries,

Slips like rain to earth's muddy core.
Snow fall feeds earth the taste of spring

Silently and secretly, each droplet

Scented with the ripe fruit of summer, the
Secret burn of autumn's cold fire--a

Single drop, a cold comfort.

Snow slides down to the berries.

    Pretty! I have some very similar pictures on my flickr account, taken of our crabapple tree after a freezing rain.

  2. Beautiful picture. The s-es beginning each line helps the water slide and slip.
