Virgin Earth

A themed challenge on Winter.

***

Ears on fire
fingertips hurt
pin cushion cheeks
a nose that’s burnt.

All this pain
I will endure
on a morning like this
air crisp and pure.

Ducks do practice
for Dancing on Ice
A Heron to judge
a look that could splice.

Further along
the canal takes a twist
where skimming snowflakes
a winter morn’s bliss.

All this happens
while you’re so fast asleep
you miss the wonders
of mid-winter’s treat.

So do what I do
and wake with the birds
put on your clobber
and tread virgin earth.
