Encouraged by 2 fab community members to create this new topic. Hope you like.
Thought this could be a nice space to share some of the poems we have written and inspire each other with our creativity. Poems are a way for me to voice whats going on in my head especially when my anxiety has left me feeling somewhat foggy headed.
Hope you enjoy reading and sharing your work.

What a lovely new topic @Pennywren
Thank you for creating it.
I love your poem Sunrise and look forward to reading some of your other poems and will try and write some of my own which I will share on this thread.

My breath mists before me.
There is no sound,
The birds hidden in the tree.
Wrapped up warm,
Layers of fluffy softness.
Trees are bare,
Snowdrops poking out the ground.
Tiny buds begin to appear,
Maybe spring is nearly here.
Sun sparkles on the frost,
Each blade of grass twinkles.
Can I sleep til spring is here?
When warmth comes first,
And lambs appear.
When darkness gives way to light.

Your poem "Ice" truly creates the images in my mind of what you describe.
You are very talented. Thank you for sharing this with us.

My attempt, written a few minutes ago
The Night Stalker
Silent steps along deserted streets
Prints in snow beneath the feet
Hurrying to shelter from the damp
Long shadow cast by street lamp
As it is not yet dawn
Over garden gate, across the lawn
And a few steps more
To the mat by the door
And waits and gives a purr
With bright eyes in feline fur
