threshold december

slow steady steps
on this ice skimmed road
head deeply hood tucked
against the north wind roar
cold         just cold

on this threshold december

  5. December is quite alive and well in your verse, and huddling is all there is to do. Enjoyed.

  6. Excellent use of alliteration, and the ending line comes after a really nice line effect. Great poem.

  10. When the threshold is icy, it's apt to be the most treacherous. Tight write.
