Winter's Kiss

The bird’s house is capped with a snow drop.
The bird’s bath is a mushroom like form.
The branches all groan, snap, crackle, pop,
with the weight of the night’s snow so borne.

The cat’s on the rug near kitchen vent.
The furnace is pumping out more heat.
The tea kettle’s whistling with intent.
The old gal settles down with a sweet.

The car’s all shrouded, a sheet of white.
The trellis is a grand work of art.
Outdoors the benches all gleam with ice.
The new moon’s a rare, randy, upstart.

Darkness descends will a muffled whisper.
She sips tea and remembers who’s kissed her.

    I love the winter setting here ... well crafted, a broad brushed mural with an intricate color scheme ... winter's white beauty. Thanks for your kind comments, Deb, you are forever my friend.

    Great images of the winter scene as seen through the eyes of the "old gal," Deborah. I had a good laugh reading the last line! Nice work. Love, Carolyn

    Very Beautiful and lovely Poem. Very lucid and vivid in describing the winter's homely scene including the tea kettle's whistling. Thanks for a lovely reading and many thanks for your beautiful comments on my poem Flow River flow. Hope you would like the boatman's Song as well. With best wishes and love Ravindra
