Winter - Traditional Cinquain

Winter
The kiss of death
That downs the autumn leaves
To burn in crimson flames beneath
The ice

A kiss of winter

 
Tis cold
this night so love
clear starry sky behold
rainbow around moon above
so bold
The walk
in snow tis bright
no path not yet we talk
frosty vapors intwine in flight
then caught
The fire
from hill come sleighs
children bound to conspire
the mood now dire first kiss to weigh
transpires

Winter

Winter:
Icy cold
Snow still blows.
Frosting, chilling, filling the
Season.

Winter - Traditional Cinquain

So cold
The kiss of death
That downs the autumn leaves
To burn in crimson flames beneath
Her ice

Winter Night

Stillness.
Heavy and dank,
The tepid air steams
From the ground, confused and distorted.
Warming.

Silent.
The spectrum muted.
Sallow wind haunts, and
Cobalt tones eclipse memories of white.
Chilling.

Winter II

Winter –
One final fall
Of soft and silent hands
To shroud the earth, so beautiful
And dark.

Winter Rose

Red.
It's love at its
Purist. It blooms intact
then love turns a numb, cold shoulder.
The frost.

Frosted forests
Shimmy and shiver
Glistening gloriously in icicled

Winter pheasants

Masquerading

fashioned from cloisonné;
cocksure pheasants striking arrogant

WINTER BARK

Below
twin vapour trails
on sky November blue-
Canada geese in formation-
head south.

Winter

Raindrops
Crying on glass
Lamenting fading light
Ushering in winter of long
dark nights.

Ski Trip

Ski Trip

skiing
nature's backwoods,
over frozen lakefronts,
among quiet darken patches,
snowfalls

Yearning

For whom does the death rattle whisper
on this windless, snowy night?
The old man sitting by the fire, listening
to his loving wife, wordlessly wishing;
yearning for more time within this life.

His blue eyes flicked in the fire's light
fixated on his joyous love
who's black hair blended along with night
and silver streak fallen over her eye,
never able to stay above.

As the rattle grew into a shutter,
the smoke plumed upward to the sky.
The fire crackled, and popped, and sputtered.
Watering, his blue eyes said goodbye.
