A contribution to Ronovan’s Decima Challenge No.41: prompt word Shimmer on the C rhyme line. Linked to the previous Haiku Challenge: Frost and Glint. A technical variation to the Decima form, with the use of half rhyme throughout.
Seasonal Snowflakes like a perfect crystal fill the fields outside our backdoor. On the horizon, see the deer searching for food near this coastal town. We know Winter can cost all our neighbouring beasts a Summer of feeding, as hedgehogs slumber beneath the glinting shards of frost. Will they awaken, be the first to encounter Spring's fresh shimmer?
