Wind Chimes in Winter


Deathly clear
icy rime around wind chime
is scentless, thin;
tinkle, travel,
ring, unravel,
cold chills close,
ghostly, grim.

Hark! Pay attention!
Wonder at winter chimes;
blustering, gustering
gale sings,
faster and clearer.
Chimes whirl,
wild, wicked, free.

  1. That was really nice – good rhythm, enough rhyme to keep it interesting, and not too long.
