Writings and Witterings

Frosted Web


Napowrimo small

Lacelike cobwebs creep the hedgerows
sharp as prying spiders’ eyes,
sequin-edged and spikily shining
clear spun sugar in disguise.

Lazy hips and haws lounge
and taut twigs cringe in fingered frost,
while fluffed-up scarlet-red and round,
a robin chirps for the worms he’s lost.

So, that’s my final poem for NaPoWriMo 2020 – hope you’ve enjoyed your daily dose of my poetry – hopefully my new collection ‘Growing Places’ will be out later this year.
