Whispered Wonders

The brisk Autumn breeze
crisply smiles and leaves
inviting seasonal ascendance.
Past dark hollowed eaves
her departing breath weaves
a path for Winter's wondrous entrance.

Courtly canyons kowtow 
the mighty mesas bow
sparking December's grand revival.
Barren branches applaud
as mountain peaks laud
Jack Frost's ever welcomed arrival.

Carols liltingly sung
whilst wreaths are gently hung 
silver enchantment lusters the ground.
The old and the young catch
snowflakes on their tongues 
choirs of church bells neatly resound.

Cozied from silent chills 
tapered candles sleep on sills
illuming the dusk’s frosted splendor.
A forest brook’s trickles
forge tiny icicles
dripping tears of crystal surrender.

Christmas trees brightly greet
joyous townsfolk on the street 
tiny tots, all too well, understand.
Ole Saint Nick and his sleigh
are just a few stars away
from visiting their white wonderland.

Truelove skaters take flight,
under an arctic twilight, 
snuggling snowbirds coo and entice.
Deer and bunnies espy,
'neath the moon's watchful eye,
young lovers etching hearts in the ice.

Winter’s sparkle and glow
softly sings in the snow -
her grandeur is timeless and few.
Yet, before her winds shift
she bestows us a gift
and Spring makes her yearly debut.

    This is very lovely! I love the picture of Christmas anticipation you painted, as well as the beauty and wonders of the winter season, which you captured from many viewpoints so gracefully. I found this very uplifting and inspiring. My favorite word picture: "A forest brook’s trickles forge tiny icicles dripping tears of crystal surrender." Wow. God bless and thank you so much for your kind comments, they are very appreciated. :) Happy Holidays and blessings to you and yours! Amy
