Slowly

flake
by feathery
flake
snow falls
on the frozen lake
milky light
fills the sky at daybreak
icing trickles
on the Christmas cake
children smile
at a snow-globe shake
slowly
across
the world
Christmas
wakes

My response to Imaginary Garden with Real Toads Fashion me your words: slowly

Gillena’s challenge this Christmas weekend is to fashion our words around the theme ‘slowly’ in a poem of not more than 100 words.

Happy Christmas Toads!
