You hide, dark and frozen,
camouflaged by sparkles and shimmer.
I sense you waiting, and tread lightly,
Cautiously testing every step.
Nervous and yet, I still smile, feel that moment of joy
With the sky vivid blue shining above me,
I’ve failed, I’m slipping,
distraction will be my downfall.
A pivot, a slither, hands shaking I recover!
Another win in this long endless winter.
Human scores ONE,
Winter Ice scores NONE!
This was written in honour of my beautiful mum who did not win in her recent battle with a hidden patch of ice, she slipped and broke her wrist. Damn You Winter!
