Likely Not What You Were Expecting

I participated in a flash scene with MJ Bush, and the scene below was written in response to her image prompt here.


Do snowflakes make wishes?
Do trees blow kisses?
Does the quiet ever consider otherwise?

The beguilings of winter have bidden
and here I lay thankful to be fallen
knowing some day soon
you will come walking
and find the child inside
who then piles me high
and plants coals in my eyes
and leaves a carrot nigh
of my gap-toothed smile.
