Winter Carrots

22 Jan

 

Bright orange rays infused through flesh,

 

sleep beneath

 

straw

 

ice

 

snow

 

mesh.

 

Mercury drops while sugars rise,

January harvest

brings

sweet

surprise.

 

 

Metal tines release root from soil,

Emanates

like the

golden

royal.

 

 

Cool crisp bite no need to say,

taste of

sunshine,

long

hot

days.

      Thank you Elizabeth. Always a writing work in progress…and sometimes a poem pops up!
