The winter maiden stretches

After her long sleep

Before her icy breath

Thin blades of grass

Bend and curl colorless

Chill creeps slowly

Scaling window panes

With frosty fingertips

Dissolving into flurries

And coating stiffened earth

With crystal diamonds

And all becomes her domain

And everywhere she has her way

My name is Toni Clegg, and I was raised on a farm in the far north of the United States. I love to read and write and I hope to use those hobbies in a greater way in the days to come. One of my passions is using whatever influence I have to make a difference in the world.

    All this talk of winter is making me feel cold…I think I’ll head to the beach. 🙂 A little SoCal humor….really enjoyed the imagery of the poem Toni.
