Late Dawns And Early Evenings

Lawrence_original_3-1by Lawrence Estrey06 Dec 2019

The frost creeps up each morning
a faint coating on the pavements
slippery but barely visible

the temperature has dropped
a hint of ice hangs in the air
promising worse as winter approaches

long nights and late dawns
the sun melts the dew during the day
only for it to turn to ice once evening falls

the promise of winter
