Jack Frost

White on the lawns, the roofs, the cars
show where Jack Frost has passed,
but how I miss those leaf-like scenes
he used to draw on window glass.

A hard frost last night reminded me how much, as a child I loved the frosty patterns that appeared on the windows overnight. Now we rarely see them due to the increase in double glazing in our homes. Those intricate patterns are now just a fading memory!

January Joy 16

Jack Frost has passed this way,
peppering the blades of grass
white, like an old man’s hair.

Ice

Ice, like light snowfall,
on house roofs, cars and gardens;
Jack Frost passing through.
