Slice of Life/Day in a Poem (Day 11): Ice Slumber

(This is for the Slice of Life challenge, hosted by Two Writing Teachers. We write on Tuesdays about the small moments in the larger perspective and then all through March — every single day  …  You write, too.)

Ice solid
from slumber,
the compost
sleeps, and still,
we keep placing
blanket after blanket
of grinds, decay and
peels: a pea,
to find a princess

Peace (in the bin),

  1. This is such an evocative piece of writing and finds beauty in something that I would never think to write a poem about.

  2. Kevin, I love this winter image poem with that interesting last line. Stay warm! Your neck of the woods has had many a cold day this winter.
