Frosty Morning and a Poem

morning frost on my bedroom window

Frost Flowers
by Barbara Coan Houghton, Wisconsin Poets' Calendar, 2009

At 10 below my garden sleeps
beneath the snow.
Hungry for bloom,
I walk beside the river
paved with ice.
There a field of frost flowers
Fractures the sun,

Garden of a different sort.
