The Blues Up Beat

The frost has etched the green grass white.
Lavender clouds chased a red rimmed moon.
The maples branches writhe with fright
and I'm alone in a cold, cold room.
A light snow lifts the nascent gloom.

Moon caste blue shadows sparkle, now dance, 
as twigs skitter across the flurried lawn.
They seem to twirl on point, they prance.
I watch through the pane to the dance drawn.
The bleakness of night is now redrawn.

A symphony of woodwinds flute,
reeds whistle and brush a rousing beat, 
deep in my heart a delight roots;
I'm warmed now by a scene so sweet,
snow for Christmas what could compete?

    Beautiful, the pictures you've put in my head almost make me wish that my Christmases came in winter too.

    Ahh.....that last stanza alone, makes me want to borrow it.......I won't, but it stands on it's own merit alone as just about as good as it gets!

    From the title, I thought you were talkin about listening to the Blues cher! (Love them blues!) Nonetheless, a beautiful, somewhat lonely and haunting write in your own unique style...

    Debbie, I could sense a class write here.For some time i have planned to read poems from you,Suzanne,Andrea,Linda,nette,Carrie and other greats to get hold of meter.I would stop and take inspiration from great poets,which would be the best way to improve myself.Truly there are many poets mocking my poems.They do criticize me in their poems.I am taking this in a sportive spirit and am determined to improve myself. (: ) Jenish.

    This is so beautiful, Debbie! I really enjoyed the read. A wonderful piece of poetry for the Christmas season! Was this written for a contest? If so, I wish you the best of luck!

    Love the colorful way you did yours. I need to write one like this one. On my drive to Oregon with Joe I was trying to do this poem for the contest and absolutely nothing came to me. So I did Dr. Ram's contest instead. To be posted soon!!!
