dripping splashes
slushy mud
lumpy flow
like dragon's blood...
sloshy steps
that seep inside
shoes that try
their feet to hide.
icy tendrils
creep and flow
reminders of
cruel winter's woe.
breezes damp
with heavy mist...
sparing none
its painful kiss...
clings instead
to all who dare
the melting of
cold winter's fare.

      Nice. Very crisp. Dragon's blood always excites me. I wish some dragons would come and melt this endless winter!
