A STUDY IN SNOW


Puffy gray clouds 
Icy flakes fall


Skin kissed by the cold
A sting so soft it's almost imperceptible


The world
a study in black and white
 tinged blue.


The silence of winter its own melody


A snowfall so tranquil


Winters light
Deadly it's inspiration


Trees dark in slumber.
Extend frozen branches skyward


Reaching for warmth
Promised but undelivered


Invaders these moist white flakes


Causing chills so deep


When shadows descend


Their mighty claws appear


Strong arms


Frozen hugs


Death's grip


Until spring's thaw

HAPPY VALENTINE'S DAY!

  3. Lovely poem. The imagery is so evocative I almost wished the beautiful shots were absent. You paint a vivid ice-land.

  4. Great shots. With that out there though, Valentines day should be spent indoors

  12. Hey Yolanda,

    Excellent. This may well be the coolest post you've ever done. Awesome, atmospheric photos. And before I make a total ice of myself, I shall snow, um, go now....
