Winter's Adumbration

Shrouded penumbra
   Seconds shatter dawn's chilled gasp
        Moments remain mute

    John, this poem is one of the reasons why I have ventured into writing Haikus and other forms of poetry. This is very interesting and poetic. Thanks for your comments on my poetry and I will try to write more. Life has a way of getting in the way! ~Des Juan
