[Poetry] Forest Feast

Frost clung to the branches
Of the barren trees,
And the cotton snow sighs
Beneath our feet.

Yet, we barely feel
The chilly air,
For our lips trail fire
Wherever they meet.

Re-posted for this week’s World of Words prompt, one of my favorite Chinese words: 雪 (xuĕ), which means “snow”. The rules are simple for joining in:

  1. Every week, Rosemarie (of A Reading Writer), Maria (of Doodle Scribbles), and I will post a word from a different country in the world.
  2. Write a poem inspired by that word and use the hashtag #worldofwords. You can also tag us so we know to come and check out your poem!
  3. We’ll be sharing our favorites on Instagram (Rose’s IG, Maria’s IG, my IG), the main hub of our co-hosting duties, but depending on the response here on WordPress, I’ll share my favorites here too.

Looking forward to your wintry inspirations this week!
