Winter Scene

Winter Scene

A white domain, rhythmic tinkling of bells
the pure mystery of diagonals 
and gliding along snow-lanes 
Mystical plumes from flared nostrils, 
snow crunching under animated hooves.
A sled streaming through stillness,
stone-carved beauty alive in shape and form
A temporary world that feels timeless.

Suzanne, this one gave me a "shiver" as the winds chill the evening and the leaves abandon the trees. You "painted" a lovely picture

Such a wonderful mood to this poem. I can really see that horse just gliding in on the snow as if it were a cloud. I especially love those winter nights, where even the sky is solid white. I also enjoy how the focus is on the sled and horse, rather than the human. Makes it more mysterious.

Almost makes me like snow. Almost but my dislike of winter still prevails. Nicely done Blessings Edith
