Beautiful White Neither Dark Nor Cold

Beautiful white neither dark nor cold
In the night holding close
Tender ones needing hearts warmed
By a cloak of soft winter snow.

Burr It’s Cold

Burr it’s cold 
Burr what’s next
To unfold? 

Wind is blowing 
Leaves are gone 
Flocks of geese 
Not to be found. 

Winter today could unfold
Cause burr, burr 
It’s really cold.

Winter’s Cold Can Be A Blight

March 15, 2013

Winter's Lane ~ photo by Patrice

Winter’s cold can be a blight
Forcing sensitive to be uptight
Shivering, shaking lost control
Looking for a soft, warm cozy hole.

Howling wind does not let up
Whipping tender
Devouring them up.

Sun is bright but freezing cold
Touching frost
With icicles dripping

Marching thru at its own rate
Making us appreciate
Spring’s thaw
No one can really wait.

Snow Falls Coming Lightly Down

October 12, 2012

Snow falls coming lightly down
Melting ‘fore hitting ground
Thoughts of pureness flowing down
Freezing out illness, blight
Softly pushing them far into night
Cleansing, keeping warm
Cold dark earth on the ground.

Snow falls I can see
Cleansing too my responsibility
I must be like the snow
Let it fall, let it go
Landing, changing all I know
Trust it’s right, trust it will
Make alright like the snow
Covers, warms the land
Til spring’s beauty can make a stand.

This my snow comes lightly down
Melting ‘fore hitting ground.
