Winter Holds Court

A Poem by Debby Carlson

Barren trees christened,
stiff with crystallized branches,
whites on frozen bark,
glazed as winter holds court,

Shrouded and spiraling into air heavy
with the solids of snowflakes,
frigid air curtains blow open
upon frosted grass,

So beautiful and deceiving;
this hard deep cold,
caught rigid and lonely
in the blue-white  light.
