The frost is heavy in the air,
but snow has gone away.
Every tree is bony and bare.
The dock is cold and slippery.

The skies light fades as the sun waves goodbye,
and stars will soon come play.
A crow lets out a cry and flaps its wings away.

In warm cozy houses families come to gather,
and wash away the daily rays of sadness deep inside.
After all the lather, they turn off the lights and peer ouside then quietly quietly, whisper

Dark Castle (Part 1)

There is a castle which seems to be covered in shadow.
Ivy grows high on the walls engulfing most of the structure.
Walking through the front doors which are wide and tall enough for
three elephants stacked in a pyramid to enter.
Inside these doors there is a huge room.
This room is almost pitch black even with the
meager light from the chandelier which hangs at a peculiar angle.
A staircase flows across the right wall leading to a mysterious doorway.
Turning left there is a hall.
I walk down the the hall, noticing the strangeness of ivy growing, even inside.
I turn right right to continue up stairs and onto a second floor.
A shiver runs through my body and
I quickly turn, expecting to see a shadow.
To my surprise nothing is there.

A lion sits in a tree,
soundlessly waiting for prey.
Gazelles are wandering everywhere,
waiting away the day.
The Lions and Hyenas are at a constant battle.
They fight over carcasses and territory forever.
The bigger animals especially liven the whole scene.
Elephants drink water and moves there trunks about.
Rhino's sit around swishing their tails to and fro.
The warthogs all run around with their tails pointed toward the bright, bright sky.
A beautiful African dessert.
