Seasonal

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?
