Waiting for the Thaw

byNeonurotic©

The trees wear snow evening
gloves, but no one told them,
white was out, that black was in.
Instead, their leaf buds
freeze while the sun is too
slow peeling back clouds,
revealing blue skies.

I wait with a frosty breath, wait
for the thaw to strip them down
to nothing but naked limbs.

Ah, beauty!

How can anyone miss the inherent beauty of winter? You've evoked it really well here, and added the extra layer of suggestion that makes this just delightful!
