Advancing, advancing, the snow is amassing—  
Dampening sound also sight.
In winter we shiver afore the brutal,
deadly coma of white.

From what I hear, in some parts it could be “in autumn we shiver”. Like it!

Wow, brilliant. Having had two snowy winters in the UK, I can relate well to this piece.

Thanks everyone…almost had to change it when line 2 refused to come together, Robin

Love the line ‘deadly coma of white’ – great originality.

Comment by Joanna Burns

I love the images you have given us here Robin especially ‘the coma of white’. It made me think of the snow we had last year & how everything stopped but were not dead. Thank you so much for taking up the challenge each week.
