ivory trees

dressed by winter's hand
glistening within sunlight
trees of ivory
swaying branches in the wind
whispers of white cascade down

Blizzard

High winds churl, howling
calling forth their minions
open wide the gates
the battle will be long, fierce!
through the mountains, hills and vales

Cold Winter Is Here

 Cold   winter is here  
 
 Radiant   snow   covered   ground  

 Desiccated   air  

 Candy   cane   fragrant   aroma  

 Winter bringing out the best

The Snow is Gone


 The sun rises up
 and melts the favored snow sheets 
 children's cries burst out 
 wishing it wouldn't leave yet
 but soon it will come once more

HOUSEBOUND

H0USEBOUND

my god! i‘m housebound
another sip of coffee
outside?      Imagine 
it’s fourteen below zero
I’m tiptoeing through the snow

squirrels are watching me
birds with feathers all fluffed out
barefooted      i sink,
touch feet on the icy ground
god no!     rather be housebound

First Frost


Feathered friends flee frost
as first flurries flip and flop.
Floating, flying flock
of fair geese transform fading
fall days in fixed formation.

On the Edge of a Dream

scent of virgin snow
bathing the night in silence
     my daughter’s footsteps
          echoing on dream’s frayed edge
a yearning heart constricting


I dedicate this to my daughter who is working and living in the UK. Snow scenes always remind me of her and I long to see and hold her again.

Snowballs

I dont know about this poem but here it is:

When snow falls softly
You can make some cold snowballs
Try making some snowballs
Snowballs can be delicate
Sometimes they can be quite cold.

Please post with ideas to fix it..

Winter tanka

Snow falling slowly
Covering the earth in white
Snowflakes thus whirling
Gracefully encouraging
Veiling and dancing in light

winter sunrise

a winter sun rise
barren trees aglow with frost
a blanket of snow
alit like fire from the sun
cover all that once was green

Winter




                          Heavenly snowfall,

                  after dark harsh hiemal night,

                   breaths to warmth embrace,

                      youthful lovers led astray,

                    as cold winter blizzards chill !

Chilled Leaves



My bones are exposed

As winds undress the texture

Clinging to wool skin

I find no haven at morn,

When fall buries my ribs deep

The poem is about Autumn
and I spoke of leaves.
