It's late and I have been working on my art all day and just haven't the strength for much more than these few little winter poems.

A Thought From My Winter's Window Past



A Thought From Winter's Window Past


It’s snowing
And cold outside
Almost a blizzard now
As winter wind blows her ice
Through countryside

A Safe Place To Hide


I hope
All the little animals
Have a safe place to hide
Warm and cozy inside
Because it is going to be cold
Bitter cold
In the wilds
Tonight.

Three Winter Haikus

Winter Haikus

Outside love tree stands
with arms and fingers empty
but one red apple

who waits tenderly
for picking by someone sweet
before cold winds come

then - when north winds blow
red apple falls onto ground
never touched by love

The Signal


The Signal

Last of the fireweeds
purple plumes
spared by Jack Frost,
Indian paint brush
and fairy slippers
signaled their sisters last night
of the nipping snow
a little higher up the slope.

Thanks LOVERME, but I have never seen one in ice, but I think I drank one once, or was that a barrel...I forget now.

Thanks Fern, I don't know why it is, but I work for those shinny things. They really have little to do with the content, its the system that shines.

As a kid spirited, I really worried about the animals in the wild, if they were warm and safe through winter's cold...I think that is the thought, the only thought.
