Inspired by Moroni 7:19
|Frost glitters under winter sun,
freshens cold pavement
with brilliant pinpricks.
Copper-barked pear tree
already bristles with new buds,
catches morning light and flickers
at topmost branches.
Yellow thistles glow like candles
by the pond, grasses glimmer silver
to their feathered fingertips.
Wild rose bush bends
under burden of ripe hips
heavy and red as great drops of blood.
As sun’s brassy O blares
silent hallelujah from the blue,
horses in the field prick ears to hear,
flick tails in time, nicker to the tune.
My feet softly mark off measure
by measure as I hum along,
