WINTER BERRIES

Winter berries

Scarlet berries break the grey
winter, life stripped to its bones
pristine under the cover of snow
beauty skin deep
pierced by thorns dripping blood
seeds of life.

I am so looking forward to spring.  In the dead of winter, even the Barberry bush that I normally do not care for, has its merits.  It has little red berries that lend a little color to the sad winter scene.  🙂
