Return of the Rime

Rime ice coats the Observation Deck this morning

The air has a chill
That invokes a shiver
Sending ripples down the spine
Causing the body to quiver

The sound of the wind
Howling past my ear
Is a familiar reminder
We’ve reached this time of year

I pull my hat down
And zipper up tight
I walk across the deck
And soak up the sight

The sun has just risen
Peeking above the silhouettes
The cloud bank rolls in
And settles all debts

Crunch, scrunch, crack
Reverberating through the air
The rime has returned
After it once was so rare

Plodding along
To the rhythm of the beat
My footsteps are now
Sounding so sweet
