ivory trees

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

Winter Night

Frost and moonlight mimic my unwritten page but barren trees have printed inky shadows across the brittle earth

Silent Winter Days

Silent Winter Days ( Tanka Suite) Twinkling stars at night within a soft snowflakes kiss silent winter days happy the snowflakes dancing as the quietly come and go Tracking through the snow on the way a deer appears such a joyous sight natures winter wonderland ice crystals everywhere Silver moonbeams fall tea-rose skies creating a glow reflecting wonders golden yellow and bright red putting on a winter show Gleaming in the sky pine trees dressed in lacy white transformed magic land covered with soft silent snow displaying winter with grace Erich J.Goller Copyright 12 5.2011

Yosemite in Winter

gentle flakes drift down...
   winter dusts the valley floor
      drifting through branches
         like a silent retelling 
             of an old native legend

winding brooks of glass
   shimmer as they meander 
       through meadows of gleaming frost...
         A crystalline bridal veil
             adornes cathredral spires

Granite monoliths,
   crafted by glacier giants,
      surround the valley...
        hovering as if to guard
         this piece of heaven on earth

Changing Face Winter

Autumn’s nakedness
becomes robed in virgin snow
footprints prove there’s life,
yet the secrets of springtime
in hibernation till birth.

Graceful Deer -- Tanka Contest

Deer are so pretty
As they stand against the snow
And they are graceful 
As they leap over fences
To come to the stream and drink

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

Winter Tears

Dark, December days
dim brightest holiday lights
and silence sleigh bells.
She grieves for summer's sunlight
as tears fall like bitter snow.

It's Winter

Frozen lake-water, Damp eyelids,misty breath, Foggy-streets' dim lights, Silvery-green valleys, Leafless trees,concrete boughs.

Cold Winter Is Here

 Cold   winter is here  
 
 Radiant   snow   covered   ground  

 Desiccated   air  

 Candy   cane   fragrant   aroma  

 Winter bringing out the best
