Winds whisper secrets with icy lips
Icicles hang like fingers from skeletal trees
New blanket of snow sparkles like tiny diamonds
Tiny snowflakes fall like confetti from heaven
Everywhere the eye can see is painted a brilliant white
Romantic roaring fire removes the icy chill

Wispy white snowflakes they softly drift down 
Icing the earth with a wintery gown 
Natural beauty where children can play
Toboggans are out on a snowy day
Everywhere glistens in bright sparkling white
Rosy faced children glow with sheer delight 

Biting winds blow so we dress snug and warm
Enormous snowmen begin to take form
Awesome snow angels imprinted in snow
Unique snowflakes dance, they swirl fast and slow
Temperatures plunge; I can’t feel my toes
Yikes! I look like Rudolph; see my red nose!

Snow Acrostrain

Silently it falls throughout the night
Nestling in the nooks of wishful mind
Only option to a sense of sight
Wond’ring how it looks were she not blind.

Scintillating snowflakes floating gently to the ground
Painting the landscape white, they don’t make a sound
Every single shimmering snowflake has a unique design
Catch them on your gloves and hands, they look so divine
Transforming our world to a winter wonderland
Aesthetically pleasing, our gardens look so grand
Children build huge snowmen; they have so much fun
Until the snow begins to melt beneath the winter sun
Lovely soft snowflakes swirling are a glorious sight
All around us our surroundings turn a wintry white
Real beauty captivates our eyes in our wonderful world

Maples Crying

Many are the maples that encircle my home, my nest, my dwelling abode,
And in the dark of night they tap on my frosty windows, crying;
Past their deathly stance, a wintry scene, 
Looking through their tangled limbs snow is falling, endlessly.
Everything in my world is icy white, sky and earth mingling,
Soon, I whisper to them, you will be wearing your emerald gowns;

Creaking and groaning they mumble in their frozen rest,
Reaching out gnarled fingers to me.
Yes, my dears, soon, so soon you will stand in resplendence,
Ice and snow will be replaced with fringes of delicate, filigree green;
Now rest, now sleep maples sweet,
Gather your memories of spring, summer and fall close and dream.

SNOW Acrostrain

Silently, white softness falls from twilight’s sky.

Nothing can be seen or heard out on the street,

Only wind, which moans as it is passing by.

Warmed by fire, we cuddle in our sweet retreat!

Moonlit Snow

Moonlit Snow

So swiftly snow cascaded wide and deep;
Now pristine blankets of white wonder gleam.
Only the moon observes while earth's asleep
With snowfall magic and its peaceful dream.

The First Snowfall

The First Snowfall

Twinkling, glistening
Happy the glow
Early this morning

For winter’s first snow
Illumined the shimmer 
Reflections of love
Softly they fall
Tiny flakes from above

Settling white
Neath an evergreen sway
Open your eyes
Windows bring the display
Frost covered whispers
Aloft they now flow
Lingering beautifully
Look at the snow

Melting snows begin to fade
   As a newborn season arrives,
      Refreshing our lives grown dull.
         Cradled in green budding leaves,
            Hushed by the winds of spring.

Window panes cheerily frosted
Insiders huddle to stay warm
Nights start early and end late
Tea blends are honeyed to taste
Early diggers shovel after each storm
Rambunctious boys want to skate

Happiness is remembering my wild summer garden,
Arbors of white roses and purple clematis;
Pretty yellow daylilies and daffodils beside a rail fence,
Placing carefully flowers, I create a soul-soothing retreat.
In my lovely garden all Mother's old favorites grow,
No color does not have its place to welcome birds and butterflies;
Even wild flowers and vines, and kittens grow,  
Seeding themselves the purple larkspur and rosy phlox;
Such beauty, O such beauty, now is resting beneath the snow.

Jack Frost

Jack Frost etches glass with spirals of snow and ice,
A feathery pattern of crystalline cravings
Chiseled long into the night, with but a single
Kiss of winter’s icy cold breath to sustain him. 	

Frozen abstract swirls of intricate art, soon rise
Resplendent, bathed within dawn’s early morning light.
Opaque, with a mother-of-pearl sheen that glows, as
Shafts of sunlight melt and mold its shape into a
Translucent, shimmering, ever changing sculpture.

Written Nov. 27th , 2015 for “Acrostic: Jack Frost - Poetry Contest”.
The poem contains all of the mandatory words “ice, snow, winter, frozen, Jack”.

Winter's Blanket



Winter winds and snowflakes drifting
Ice bound trees all glittering
No noise except the white falling stars
Tiny snow birds are twittering in delight
Everything is white and pure and serene
Round the fireplace we gather warm and cozy
Soft and quiet the fluttering snow comes down

Bright, delicate snow floating
Landing silently are the perfect spheres
All my world is now dazzling
No noise except the dancing snow descending
Keeping warm by the fireplace with tea
Everything is blanketed white
The forest, the garden and even the house

Frigid winds 
Indent the once silken
Radiance of a bygone,
Sun struck summer
Terrain .  It’s
Fall, and
All that 
Lingers is
Lightly coated with
Snow, a
Now troubling harbinger
Of surely approaching

Prankster Jack Frost

Jailed at home by a white, frozen world
Adorned by one unmindful Jack Frost.
Ceramic ice was recklessly hurled,
Kicking bitter, beast-winter across
Fields, woods, yards and modern built cities.
Rejoicing nature rules us as boss,
Offering risky snow trussed pretty.
Some people claim this day is a loss,
Taken by a prankster, Mister Frost.

Winter Storm raging on 
Icicles sparkling in the sunlight
Nip of whiskey to stay warm
Tightly bundled is the norm 
Every mile in winter is like two
Roads slushy, drivers with no clue

Short days and dark chilly nights
The valley is covered with snow
Overcast skies, flurries again tonight
Rivers frozen, bitter cold
More snow is on its way

Softer than fresco snow silently slide
Newness reigns supreme as baby's breath
One and all in awe we do look up
Wishing everyone winter wonderland.

SNOW - Acrostrain

Snuggled and hunkered down in winter clothes,
Nestled warm in a winter wonderland.
Only parts in sight are their eyes and nose.
Wee ones out to play who can barely stand.

Falling snowflakes like delicate lace, and
Every tree is draped in pure white
Beyond my window pane . . .
Relentlessly drop these gifts from God
Utterly beautiful this time of year . . .
And the wind wails like violins, with the
Rhapsody of chirping birds
Yellow, in a snow covered tree

Winters frosty snowflakes fall
Ice runs through your desire
Never ending nippy nights
Tender moments by the fire
Evergreens flapping in the winds
Rivers frozen, slightly dire

Silent days and Shimmering nights
Overcast evenings so inviting
Loves flame slowly lighting
Sparkling, shivering so exciting
Tinsel dancing in the air
Icicles shining with such flair
Cold breezes blowing through 
Every nook and part of you.

Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas

Choirs of children singing gleefully
Hand bells and ‘Silver Bells’ ringing
Red holly and mistletoe ‘Deck the Halls’
In preparation for Christmas morning
Snowflakes teasing a ‘White Christmas’
Traditions followed and being made
Midnight Mass along with hugs and kisses
Angelic ‘Silent Night’ throughout the land 
Solemn celebration of the birth of Jesus
Children productions of nativity watched 
All praying for peace on earth and good will
Ritual reading of ‘Jolly Old St. Nicholas’ to those
Only staying awake from excitement and thrill
Listening for Santa's reindeer landing on roof
Smiling parents leave cookie crumbs as proof

Snow Acrostrain

Sleeping snow awaits to penetrate from above
Niveous pillows of cloud temper the surround,
Ornamental crystals waltzing within the wind
Wanton; knowing when not here you’re sleeping around.

SNOW - for contest


Slowly it crept across the peak
Numbing the core of life’s lament
Obscuring what had been before
White shroud upon dreams firmament.

Jack Frost

Jack Frost was knocking on my window this morning,
And outside a blanket of white snow lay;
Captivating and dazzling in my backyard, and
Kissing my window with ice lace patterns.

Frozen lovely swirls, painted by Jack Frost,
Rap-a-tap, winter is here, oh that
Object d'art covered with snow is your car,
Shimmering in a coat of ice like frosting.
Turning, I climbed back into my cozy bed. With a sigh!

December for contest

Daunting rain from the floating clouds turned into a blanket of magical snow on the ground Evergreen trees bowing their boughs with the weight of the falling snow Chimneys blaze with warm crackling amber fires for the long, freezing winter - Evening nights, and the crisp winter days Merry evenings with cups of hot chocolate or wine to stay warm amidst the chilly weather Brighten faces with surprises in pretty boxes left behind under the Christmas tree Eager children’s chatter, dashing, dodging, and dancing to music and holiday cheer Rejoicing with those we love in prayer 10/28/2015

A Snow day comes.

Snowfall impedes our mobility.
Now some venture out to test their ability.
Our streets and yards are pristine white.
We're trapped 'neath Winter's cold, grey light.

Don't venture out on a day like this,
As Old Man Winter shakes his fist.
You wait for the snow plough, this is no jest.

Come bake some cookies or play a board game;
Or shovel the walk way till you've got the blains.
Most hunker down by the fire to stay warm.
Even rabbits stay in on this chilly morn.

What a magical lofty display
In the snowflakes gentle interplay
Now that winter has brusquely arrived.
Teasing tiny squirrels have contrived
Endearing secret places to hide
Rounded precious acorns to abide.
Windowpane's faintly show frozen lace
On their enchanted cold glassy face.
Nature smiles at busy birds in flight
During dawning's early morning light
Entertaining us with their sweet song,
Requiting beings to get along.

Acrostic: Jack Frost

                                              Jack Frost, a naughty hellion's arrival is often afeared.
                                    Acrimoniously he brings his uncharitable winter baggage of 
                         Chilblains, clattering teeth, frost bites, snow blindness,
             Knocking down the strongest in sleety ice and frozen snow.

   Fathomless is his mischief with kids in winter, and
             Roars in laughter at their overreactive plight in ice skating.
                       Outraged at being tied down by rules, Jack frees himself to 
                               Sculpt snowmen smoking smokeless pipes which
                                    Tempts children to snowball attacks in his blissful wintry eden.
