The line between the warmth and cold

The reminder that winters on its way

A feeling that is sometimes welcomed when overheated from a run

But can be dangerous when you are unredressed

Frost can keep you awake but also has the power to knock you out


It’s a cool light coating

Packing more strength than you know

Frost is a silent killer of crops and plants

There are all types of frosts

There’s white frost, black frost, window frost and advection frost

Then you have to deal with its dew point

The atmospheric icing

Desublimation and the frost point

Don’t forget the liquid phase, the crystals

Water vapor, the supercooled droplets

Frost, sometimes visible sometimes invisible

Always cold and lingering just like love
