thin icy
fingers trace across
window panes

cryptic notes
early commuters
scrape away

beneath pale
breathy clouds their dirge
finds a shroud

Very interesting word play here - with the cryptic and dirge - certainly a lot of commuting feels a bit like a little death! k.

Hi Manicddaily, thanks for letting me know.

As magical as winter is, it does hold a death - or at least its breath - until spring bursts forth with new life.

An amalgamation of both types of lunes here, using well-drawn images, like the slide of a finger across the frost.

With three slight Lunes you tell a tale, repeated daily, in winter 'round the world. Well done.

I like the imagery you used in this. I can see a line of commuters laughing and writing on the windows to pass the time as the scenery is speeding by :)
