Jack Frost Has Paid Us A Visit.

Updated on December 17, 2012

Cold, Frosty Moring

On waking, this morning, my room seemed so bright,

In the middle of Winter, bright equals white.!

So, expecting a blanket of snow,

I moved to my window, but NO!. Not snow.


Jack Frost had arrived while I slept.


The mist in the air is thick...... can´t see far,

But beneath my window, my garden is there,

White as can be.... a fine film of frost.

Gives everything a different look.


Mundane objects, wheelbarrows or cans,

are now full of beauty, of snowy white charm.


Yes, Jack Frost has been here with a vengeance.


As children we always imagined Jack Frost,

a spindly little man made of ice.,

The shapes he would leave on our window panes,

Always gave rise to our guessing games,.....

What can we see? A star, or a face ,...A flower,

A tree...?


Those days before heating we have in each room,

We´d snuggle down deep in our blankets,

heavy real wool, weighing a ton, on our tiny frames,

Meant we were warm while playing our games,.


When Jack Frost had been with a vengeance.


Today I look out through my window panes

remembering all our cute childhood games,

and watching the mist slowly rising.

Soon the frost will be gone.,

The day will be dull.

So I´m grateful I rose early morning.


When Jack Frost had been with a vengeance.

    Oh! Lesley, it´s amazing how our minds can be sometimes ´taken back´as though in a time machine, just by a view, a smell, a song-........

    Thank you so much for your support.

    Hello Dim. Chilly air stirred memories of childhood as a special memory of hiding deep in blankets was brought to mind. What a treat your work has provided.

    Beautiful! I'm very fortunate to see days like this on a regular basis because I'm out before dawn every day. I've been tempted to stop and take photos on my travels, but I haven't yet. It's so cold!!!

    Voted beautiful and up!
