Poetry Friday: Frosted in Place

Poetry Friday

Frosted in Place

In a tight
black ball,
the cat
the wooden fence post
and waits
the frosty
white grass
to thaw.

Lorie Ann Grover, 2008

Thanks for joining us bloggers who sometimes post our original poems on Poetry Friday--as well as at other times. I'm going to add On Point to my blogroll at Wild Rose Reader.

P.S. I like your poem.
