d’Verse Quadrille #172; Shift (2)

Shift is the word for Quadrille Monday at d’Verse , where Mish is tending the bar. The theme and style of your poem is open as long as your quadrille is exactly 44 words, not including the title. I have entered a second quadrille, less self serving than my first. Visit the pub to link in and to read more shifty poems.

Transformations of Matter by D. Avery

don’t think me shiftless

I’m bearing witness

to the melting snow

transformations of matter

microscopic multifold

crystalline structures collapse

heaped snow shrinks and shifts

drips water and mist

changing shape and form

winter’s end is this

snow a splitting chrysalis

spring unfolds damp wings

      • We lose a lot, and not just snow, with those to-do lists. Thank you for doing the math for me. It’s rarely gets that cool here. Not any more anyway. It barely gets down to 10 mid-winter though I do remember frosts from years ago.
