Snow by Siobhan Donaghy
despite its harmless appearance
it’s touch is bitter as it melts
Nature’s naked innocence
exposing itself to protect
the bare fingers of the trees,
Like a resting traveller by Siobhan Donaghy
stooping wearily in an abandoned doorway,
it arrives in the dead of the night
leaving nothing but a sodden leaf
in the wind.

Storm Clouds by Emily Bygrave
Bruised, the sky frowns as
lightning licks the streets; thunder
snapping at my heels.
The Road by Emily Bygrave
The road stretches towards me
like falling into the arms of an old friend.
Soaked in sunlight and alone,
I try to hitch a ride.
Car after car drones by
but all I’m given is the hard shoulder.
