Sidewalk and Freshly Plowed Snow

Snow wraps white.
Sky beams blue.
Winter’s night–
Calmly true.

Text: Linked to dVerse Meeting the Bar.  I will be hosting and the theme is brevity with poems five lines or less.  There are no other constraints.  The pub opens at 3:00 PM EST.

Winter Sunset

Author: Frank Hubeny

I enjoy walking, poetry and short prose as well as taking pictures with my phone.

  1. Ah the photo evokes your words of “calmly true.” I especially think, if we can happen outside right at the moment when the snow stops falling, and there are no plows or footsteps yet, that new fallen snow and a hush…absolute serenity and calm in that scene.

  2. I don’t normally care for the cold, but right now your sweet verse and matching photo make me envious. I am enduring a terrible heatwave.

  3. that is such a pretty scene to look at, read about and also dream of, i like the the few words that convey much, you picked a very topic Frank, being economical with our words but conveying what we want to say as perfectly as we can. it also makes reading the 50 or more contributions a lot easier on these tired eyes. I am being so rude, ditching the family and catching up on reading during the Lunar New Year here, but the lure of D’Verse poets is too hard to resist! blessed weekend to you.
