Freezing night

It is dark,
It is night,
Alone I watch a reddish sky.
The frost is jumping on the trees
His lingering smile smears my windows.

It is almost silent,
I can hear the cracks footsteps make
When snow is touched.
I wait
A dog is crying to the moon
She runs away to warmer places
I bring a blanket
Spoon the tea
It’s cold already!

    A very delightful poem with playful,semi-serious and disquieting overtones. And topical too,with vast swathes of continental Europe currently under snow and ice. I particularly enjoyed the line, ” His lingering smile smears my windows ” . the skill of the poet is much in evidence as a simple everday scene begins to morph into something borrowed from Edgar Allan Poe!
