A Winter Treasure

beneath skies of topaz flawless infinite in depth and clarity the clouds had fallen... a soft white cushion just for us laughing we lay back and made snow angels together

    Sharon, Thank you for sending positive thoughts to John Loving. The sadness he is feeling must be overwhelming now. He wanted his relationship with April to grow and lead to a future together. Love, Carolyn

    This is just wonderful, Sharon!! I bet it will do well. Yeah, some of my line breaks are silly in that poem. I invented that 7/5 trochee form, and so to be consistent and model it as 7 syllables followed by five syllable lines, I have to break it at odd places sometimes. haha. Luv, Andrea

    This write has put me in the mood for snow; however, we rarely get any substantial amount here. I enjoyed the write, good luck in the contest. Caryl

    Sharon, what I like about this poem, and the "word limit" what Kay Ryan refers to as "the edges" of a poem....this beauty is powerful in the weight of its "edges" spectacular! jimbo
