Frost “Haiku”

diamond crisp

the grass is all corsets

and stays


linen and crinoline

starched by stars

standing to attention


each blade on parade

shaving the dew

into icing sugar


walking on cornflakes

barefoot with toes

the Milky Way watches


each sparkle packet

glistens tears of joy



not a single footprint

has yet broken

the silent carpet


the centuries serene

watch as the robin

whispers to dawn


pink panther sun

bathes resplendent

the whiskers


the six o’clock shadow

stark and brilliant

as the world yawns
