Winter’s Skeleton

(As promised, Day 5‘s Poem. The prompt was to write a “festive” poem…festived turned into season, and this response was born. Hope you enjoy!) 🙂

beside the road,
their colorful skins
shed to the ground.
Arms raised skyward,
gnarled fingers reaching
for the moon.

Winter’s cold blanket
calms the skeletons.
The sky answers their beckons,
adorns them with jewels.
Shining in the cold sun,
bringing beauty to their
naked limbs.
