24 January: dVerse Quadrille

AI art. winter garden, snow, ice, dusk moonlight.

Winter Garden

Winter’s moon leaves
a slick of ice, agony
bedded on the leaves.

Touched by silence.

The garden shines
stiff as starched sheets.

The roses buried
where music has gone quiet.

Summer was once here
with secret perfumes that
flew the air on iced wings.

  1. Love your winter garden, Marilyn: the description of the slick of ice as ‘agony bedded on the leaves’ and the ‘roses buried where music has gone quiet’.


  2. This is simply magical, Misky ❤
