Frosted Panes

Night's breath has coalesced 
upon the window pane
etched a landscape all in white
with forest, trees, and lanes.

Frosted panes, once so plain,
now graced by nighttime's sighs
lift lacy limbs toward white capped hills
below a pristine sky.

Comes the sun, the night's undone
and I can almost cry,
as night's trace is fast erased
from my weary eyes.

Day time yawns, with the dawn
as surely you've surmised
most of nighttime's beauty will
not linger once baptized.

    A verbal gem of personal appreciation for the sublime.

    Nice job of taking in the beauty of the frost. It seems to unfold before my eyes. Very much like the day here.

    An excellent poem Deb. Back home and the kids are moved down this weekend. I had them here all last week and got played out. Kerry starts his new job today so hopefully it will be good. So far the start of the new year has been--everything that could go wrong has--so now it is time for it to swing the other way. soup mail

    ...night's beauty will not linger once baptized. Nice line. Hey, by the way, is there any way to exchange messages? Have you read (I am sure you must have) Omar Khayyam?

    From the first line........the 'coalesced' grabbed me !! A beauty!! Ps.....thanks for the comment on "Ishi". His story is well known in my neck of the woods, a piece of history that has always facinated me since moving to No. Calif....and captures a sorrow for this poor tribesman who became a spectacle of sorts. I hope his last days were happy.

    I used to love scraping my nails along the frosted windows. I enjoyed this poem and associated memories. I rewrote my Haiku and added one as well. Let me know what you think. Good night Debbie.
