Winter's Breath

Winter's Breath
Winter turns the spirit out.
Leaves go red and fall.
Snowy silence sits about.
I wonder at it all,
But know the proof comes in the spring
When leaves and flowers bloom
When birds again have warmth to sing
And outside’s like a room.

Linked to K’lee and Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge where the theme is “The Coming of Winter/Winter’s Breath” or “Playing with Light”.

Also linked to Trent P. McDonald’s The Weekly Smile. I realized that I don’t understand all that I think I do. No matter how bad that might seem, my smile comes from also realizing that it isn’t all that bad.

Also linked to dVerse Quadrille. De Jackson (aka WhimsyGizmo) is hosting with the word ‘spirit’.

Winter’s Breathing Turns the Trees

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

  1. Wonderful transitional poetic. I like the reference to the silence of winter, just the sound of the wind in bare branches and your own breathing. Your ABAB rhyme scheme always works well, and kudos for always getting this out of 44 words.

  2. Oh Yes When the Big Blue Room Becomes Home
    Where Clouds offer Shade to Summer Spring
    Or in Florida at Least only a small wait
    until the Days Change into
    Close to Four Seasons
    of December hehe..
    Currently in Winter
    Mode Just coming out
    of Spring again hAha.. Perhaps
    No Air-Conditioner At Christmas
    But With Body Heat and Blankets Really
    Hard to Freeze to Death Down Here only
    on the Rarest Occasions of Winter Blasts
    But Never enough Snow to Become all Iced in..
    it’s hard for me to imagine that and i’m glad for it
    Although Florida Hurricanes will be a Rather Large inconvenience too hehe..
    Anyway all the More Reason to Enjoy Nice Days in the Big Blue Room of Skies..:)
