February Fields

February is more than a month on the calendar; it is a time and place to be remembered. Look long into those frozen fields of yesterday and you will find it there.....

Cold Blue Horizon

Ice on ice ...
These hues of winter-
And beyond
The opaque white,
Across a hard-blue horizon,

Translucent light....

Remember Sledding?

This cold light is an echo
Torn from the soft blue
Of a winter-washed sky...
These are the very memories that ride the February wind;
Sliding down the snow covered slope,
Gliding over frozen pastures of taupe....

At the Old Skating Pond

In these unyielding fields of February... shadow and sunshine,
Time still stands under the tall pines...
Waiting at the ice-edge of the old sawmill pond.



In Closing

Good Morning Ron...my Mom use to call February...the winter weary month...but for me as the days grow just a bit longer and the snow has perhaps tarnished its sparkle...well it makes me feel sentimental...sending smiles with my thanks....:0)

Good morning, Delicia; I like the winter-washed sky image as well as the way your poem conveys that sentiment throughout. Mike adds so much to your poems as well. Good team-work. ~Marilyn

After quite a while I am writing this;
In fact I was sort of forgetting you-
Under pressure from mundane ..
And sometimes my little existence..
What a relief to see the pictures -
In my imagination and reality...

Lovely poem, Delicia. But, why does it remind me of my childhood days? The days when I roamed freely (and safely) in local woodlands and farmlands.

You interpret nature so well, such spontaneous,descriptions, as if nature listens to you and then paints itself.
