Yalto
Invented by Edward Ibeh: line 1 to 15:  3,4,2,4,5,3,2,3,2,3,3,5,6,1,5, no rhyme required. 

As warm as sunshine and as cold as ice Nature's the mother for whom the birds sing. Strolling through the woods, I embrace Autumn's tactile and ethereal sensations. From a crackling carpet of fallen leaves to the smell of rotting logs and fungi, Nature's presence is all-encompassing, as a chorus of skeletal branches rattle like bones in the wake of each breeze. Each season Nature changes Her looks using color to express Herself. Spring is green Summer is khaki, and Fall dapples orange and scarlet highlights on its leaves. While winter wears powder white with crystals of ice. (Verse) 10/10/2021 Let's Mix It Up Poetry Contest Sponsored by: Constance La France Couplet...Imagism and Yalto forms.

Emile, I loved your "Yalto" most of all, but your verse for Constance's contest is exceptionally well-written and compelling. Wishing you all the best in the contest.
