Outside My Front Door

outside my front door
frost-bittten weeds
wither between the gravel
bashful birds flit
in and out
of a thorny hedgerow
tendrils of woodbine
with creeping ivy
and wrestle with a fence
festooned with a tracery
of gossamer
and silver
snail spoors

Kim M. Russell, 2016


My response to Mindlovemisery’s Menagerie Tale Weaver # 96 – December 15th – What you see out your front door.

This week we are considering the world that lies outside our front doors: is it the hustle bustle of the city? The quiet urban retreat? Our entry into the magic of life?
