Premium Member As Snowflakes Settle

As clouds take over and I come in from the cold,
I am warmed by precious thoughts of you
Winter doesn’t seem to be so harsh
All these moments we are apart,
Merge, swirling in a snow globe
For me to hold and to see

Christmas Wishes
Freshly fallen snow and a cold winter breeze,
This is all I ask for Christmas, please,
Warm blankets and a hot cup of tea, 
I'll read a good book and have Santa watching over me,
Oh, the joys of Christmas, how they bring...Read More

The Parable and the Penguin

All the world a stage
Our love not left on a shelf
Waters edge, in spades

Written in stone, ring
Waddle waddle kind of swing
Will you marry me

As we take the plunge
Into the depths out of blue
Our ceremony

Is a slow walk, true
Is a path...Read More

Premium Member Winter's Approach

Sweet songbirds swiftly fly south to sing
complete silence greets winter's approach.
Bittersweet, Autumn's colors imply
sleet and snow will soon start to encroach.

Barbecue once again safely stowed
blue skies give way to dull shades of grey.
Mildew consumes the fallen leaves and
deja vu feelings...Read More

It had been snowing paw prints 
and rabbit runs. Ice fell from me
in its own sharp-tongued language;
We got here by reading different maps.
We shot bolts and sprang locks,
eventually we trapped the same sky together.
Now we can say our names 
without...Read More

The truth I feel that shivers to move
The rays of sun no warmth to feel
Scared to tell the past of real

Clipped Wings
After the sun bleeds 
colors into the sky white
stars are scattered like 

diamonds thrown across 
the violet black. The night seeps
into edge of morning

and a thread of light spills
like churned buttery cream.
Mottled pink is brushed

against linen clouds,
inking the faded shades...Read More

The Yuki Onna's sadness
Yuki onna San, Yuki onna San
Woman made of snow
Why do you cry so
Is it for loss of a husband 
Or is it for a loss of a child
Why yuki onna 
Why do you weep in despair 
And spread your icy...Read More

Premium Member Who is the Boss
in one night crystal magic covers forest 
forcing trees to bow toward ground
who is boss? Winter asks.

The trees go quietly, genuflecting
without argument, allowing her wrath
and her anger to agitate other forest components

Who is the boss? Winter repeats, wanting 
them to...Read More

Premium Member Spring Birds - CL
Robins are a delight to see
When winter snow is almost gone
To see them chirp and bounce with glee
And hear songbirds singing at dawn

An eagle soars, mighty and brawn
Flying, circling the sky so free
Feeders full, hummingbirds are drawn
Bird watching is joyous...Read More

Premium Member A world without poetry
An empty look of sadness
That never bears a smile,
A malnourished mind
Aching to utter its voice,
A baby’s cry missing
The sweet tune of lullaby.

A dark moonless night
Reminiscing of shining stars,
A pensive gloomy dawn
Rising on sunless sky
Yearning lift of marigold arc
Sprinkled in magenta.

Premium Member Blessing
Snow gathered momentum to a chorus of confusion

	Echoes of tortuous silence

	A vacuum of restless reprieve

Like moist drift sand it spread its treacherous message

	Opened trap doors of innocence

	Coalesced sinkhole’s dredged mud

Answering unspoken questions it decanted crystals of pain

	Touched sentient clouds in...Read More

Premium Member White lay on Schuman lake the snow
The snow lay white on Schuman lake
this afternoon. The ice
gleamed in the sun. I went to take
a picture. It looked nice.

White lay on Schuman lake the snow,
I took my phone to capture
where near the bank the cattails grow.

Premium Member There In The Snow
Sometimes life gets peculiar,
a picture falls off a wall
when no one’s around;
there’s a knock at the door
but, not a soul, anywhere in sight;
oh sure, there are practical jokers
everywhere but,
when the bizarre happens
right before your eyes,
and you’re fully awake;
that’s a whole...Read More

Premium Member Another Year of Grace
With John Wayne snarling at me
from the television screen,
I quickly glance at my watch;
five minutes to the end 
of a year’s journey through
what the Psalmist would describe
 as the Valley of Death,
and what Dante would describe
as a descent through hell.

Premium Member The Third Christmas Poem
Two in the morning,
and the long drive home
from an afternoon and night
of Christmas Eve liturgies,
the air is bitterly cold
as my car and I climb
the long, steep hill out of
the Minnesota River Valley of Tears
to our home fifteen minutes away.

Her Back Boots
Her black boots
So clean
So furry
They walk along the pathway to her new life

The longer she walks
The bigger the holes
The longer she walks
The more the snow tries to slow her down

But no snow, nor hole could slow down her life
She continues...Read More

The rising spirit
First steps on crisp new snow,
Flakes dancing with sparkle and glow,
Vibrations rising from the toes,
Through the body to the soul.
Snow clad trees, strength they lend,
To the weight as they bend,
Creating tunnels, spectacular view,
Over untreaded paths, guiding you.
To the perfect place,in...Read More

Premium Member blankness
there's a quiescent muse
locked away in a poet's mind
trapped in the hush of silence
that befalls amidst blank pages

his pen sits in a well
suspended inkless of time
unable to scribble words
of romance in verses

no morning rises
risen through his mind
to brighten days
that linger...Read More

When Swift, "Bird of Hermes", Its Last Flight Takes

When swift "Bird of Hermes" its fast flight takes
path through nether worlds, its tall broken stones
phantom from Olympic heights swiftly breaks,
to survive ancient gods's dying groans.
