Listen to poem:
*Image of Snow Winter White by Pixabay. Winter Whites Master winter's crystalline zephyrs brisk, studies o'er its righteous domain quickly, promptly the seasonal occurrence whisk, frost wintry breath dust a field o' calmly. Eggshells ahead, once a rocky meadow, Snow hovers across a restless highway, Wall posts look like porcelain afterglow, Cable radars are bone chinaware splay. Alabaster Venuses ... snowstorm lamps, Snow White elucidate the dwarfs a song, Daisies dozing 'neath powdery revamps, Cottonfields-rice patties, trees chiffon. Ivory pearls, wilt on places, creamed rich, Winter Sunday's finest whites are the pitch. 2022 January 18 *1st Place* A BRIAN STRAND STRUCTURED ~~Brian Strand: Judged 2022 March 08 *3rd Place* Winter Wonders Within Nature ~~M. L. Kiser - Judged 2022 January 23

As I mention to Jules, my complex nature at times can be unclear and overwhelming, and if be the case, I'm open to criticisms, and thanks a whole lot, Connie, mahalo nui loa!

Where would the Volta in this sonnet be? And what do you mean by Venuses? Goddess of love?

1st HALF: This sonnet correlates the character that winter takes on, making a field of rocks look like eggshells, alabaster venuses that the snowstorm lamps take on in appearances.

2nd HALF: As for the volta, in the good old days, Christians would dress in their Sunday whites, and as such, it's a done deal and that Sunday's takes on the wintry look regardless of the season, hence the title winter takes on whiteness persona/pitch.

Hello William, yes this is winter. It is cold and sometimes stormy. To shovel snow is not always easy. when the snow is heavy. That is when you shovel slowly to get the job done. Aloha! Darlene

I was stuck in Montreal, I missed my flight but took another a little later. We stayed at the Marriott In-Terminal Hotel for free since I've got an employee lifetime status card. The men folks and the boys did the dirty work, even if it is snow. Aloha!

Hello William, did you enjoy Montreal? How long did you stay? Heavy shoveling is hard on some people, when the snow is heavy. Good thing the grandkids did the shoveling. Aloha! Darlene

I recently visited my family in Montreal and Connecticut, Darlene, as you described it, yes, very much so but the kids and grandkids did the heavy-duty stuff. Stay safe my friend, Aloha!
