Poetry: Frosty

Crystalized tears form soft
uneven lines around youthful
forgiving skin. Bright veins 
turn brittle, trapped beneath 
unspoken truths—too many

days passed under harsh
sunlight. Hollow flowery voices
drowned out by chickadee
songs erupt into icy
frozen maps leading lost

souls nowhere. Glowing warmth
melts away glassy biting
shards—pieces of us
grown frigid. Numbed by
quiet moonless nights, we’ve

wilted.

  1. Excellent poem Bridgette! 👏👏Wonderful description of the effects of Frost in particular and winter generally. 😁😁👌👌These lines stood out to me:

    “too many

    days passed under harsh
    sunlight.”

  2. Truly lovely poem, Bridgette, and an equally lovely photo. The frost and ice look like specks of glass. I love the way one line of your verse flows so beautifully into the next. I haven’t seen any other poets use this method; it’s really original in my eyes. Love to you and your family, as always Xx 💖🌺💝

    • Thank you so kindly, Ellie! I’m having fun experimenting with how to make the lines of the poem hold meaning within the poem itself. Others do it much better, but I’m trying.

      Thank you for the love! Sending you lots of love back and a big hug!
