As the god of war

Are you red so enemies

Won’t see when you bleed?

Blue and green it is.

Large and yet so small it is.

Take good care of it.

Wrapped in sulphur clouds

You are the hottest planet.

May we visit you?

The Sun’s little pet.

But when he’s not looking, your

Temperature plummets.

 


The planet closest to the sun. It has temperatures “ranging from 100 K (−173 °C; −280 °F) at night to 700 K (427 °C; 800 °F) during the day across the equatorial regions.” Wikipedia.

Winking at me is

The Morning and Evening Star

But it’s not a star.

 

A Tree in Pyjamas

The trees are naked

Except one wearing ivy

Like it’s pyjamas

 

Quiet Place

It’s a quiet place

A place of deep reflection

A cave of the mind

 

Shocking Cold

sneeze

 

If you knock on my door

Or call me today, only

Slime will answer you

 

Warm

The camomile tea

Melts my frozen fingers, but

Your smile warms my heart

 

Frost and Strong Sunshine

Frosty day

(Frosty walk in the park)

 

The frost bites my nose

And the sun glares at me from

The icy puddles
