Siren Whispers

Siren Song


Of snow and ice

The sun dazzles, skipping

across the snow

windows frosted with ice

crystals, a frame for my eyes

the news blares of frozen doom

we remain bundled

furnace blasting

safety indoors

shadow of heat and smoke

from the chimney

dancing over unbroken snow

silent, bare trees

sentries immovable in the warmth

the sun, a pittance

a car travels down the street


the crunch of packed snow

breaking the silence, paralyzed

by the cold
