Snowflake

In our cottage, echoing in silence,
words became taboo;
inducing an early winter.

The snow fell in hordes,
pitter-pattering
down upon this town.

We let go
of our silent vows,
as its flaking lullaby began.

With numb gloved fingers,
we moulded her,
sculpting the perfect doll.

We glazed her porcelain skin with ice,
crudely poked in her eye sockets;
our own Frozen Charlotte.

We longed for her eyes to flutter open,
even for just one glassy glance.

A Walk Home

One small day condensed to the patter of rain on a hood –
and you toddling along.
A still puddle, anticipating the stomp.
A wellington poised, pink and gleaming –
to ignite a watery explosion.

Horses in the field huddle, heads bowed,
their manes flowing.
They watch as we plough on,
pure drips trickling down our faces.

You look up, suddenly, smiling.
Beatific.

The droplets kiss your sweet face,
the rain blessed to share this moment with you.
