Pond of Winter

Share the lovvvvve.....

Beneath a sheet of ice
Winter was kinder…
I shivered.
Yet the birds froze
and could not swim
nor fish
for fish
like the koi –
the carp
I was…

I looked up
and thought of
other fish in frozen ponds…

“I feel safer in winter”
as I shivered
and shivered
but knowing
Summer might kill me, burning
drought and
hungry birds
still I shivered
in the pond
of Winter

as a bird froze…
