winter white


winter white washes
across ample acres,
lightly lacing lawns.
kempt kernels cling
idly, inching imperceptibly-
green grass... gone.

Beautiful. I love winter and snow, and wish we could get some more snow at our house. It's been so dry so far this winter.

Pretty, and so fun to read out loud.

This is so beautiful. I can certainly use my imagination and your words to imagine the beauty of snow even here in Hawaii.

Beautiful shot and words.

Lovely poem and so apt.

We don't get much snow where I live, and the snow's beauty might be appreciated even more as a result of its brevity.

ms pie said...

so fascinated by the alliteration form.... and this is just as it is... we've had plenty of snow here, it's everywhere now turning to ice... burrrrr.... oh to lay in the green grass on a hot summer day...

Lovely...I want to put words with my photos and am practicing with haiku. I don't think I have any aptitude for it but I feel like I need to do it if that makes any sense...

Gorgeous poem and photo. Poetry is a wonderful way to capture our feelings about the passing seasons. You've inspired me to start writing again!

Beautifully composed shot, pared down to winter essentials.

Love the alliteration! It trips off the tongue and goes so beautifully with the photo.

Cheers!

"Green grass gone" kind of sums it all up, eh? A lovely poem to go with a lovely photo. Thanks.

Snow is fantastic for the first few days however after the 3rd month it becomes a tad annoying lol.
