let winter be

by Singledust

Take the summer sun as you leave
And all the falling autumn leaves
But don’t take away my December
When at last it is winter

a walk in the snow

by Singledust

Come he said
And I followed
Putting my heart
In his hands
Take the path
Down south
And I said, yes
I will follow

a tiny snowflake in a city by the lake

by Singledust

I walked into the city one cold windy day and saw a man in gray
He had an umbrella made of steel with fine lines on display
I had seen that kind of umbrella once before
Described in a story I read while sitting on the floor

Wintertime tangents

by Jem Croucher

11-march-2013

Off at a tangent
at this time of year
When it’s still wintertime
but the spring is quite near
It’s getting lighter each day
and at evening time too
And though trees are still bare
there are signs of the new

Skidding Past A Woods On A Snowy Evening

by HemmingPlay

car-overturned-in-snow-583648880-57e9c59d5f9b586c35079f79

Whose tracks those are I think I know
His auto’s by trees yonder, though;
He cannot see me skidding past
(His windows buried deep in snow.) 

My Subaru must think it queer
To try to stop in any gear
Trapped ‘tween ditch and looming truck
Whee! First ice storm in this crappy year!

Safety brakes cause wheels to shake
Miss the truck? ‘Tis a grim sweepstake
The only other sound the squeals
Of a useless scream and semi’s brakes.

The woods are lovely, dark and deep,
And I now wish I’d picked the Jeep,
But tears’ll freeze if now I weep,
But tears’ll freeze if now I weep.

Winter – sedoka

by Jem Croucher

one

As winter takes hold
Autumn fades to memory
with a tinge of sadness there

Yet with the winter
Crystalline treasures return
and we are richer for that

Didn’t realize autumn is here.

Maple tree is still green.

A tree stands faintly showing
Wrapped within a cape of white

The evening of the year

by Jem Croucher

Lawress Hall 22.1.13 24

Beauty wears a frown
as Autumn colours fade and die
The Summer’s warmth now distant
as the year it hurries by

December looms. Finality
Twenty-fifteen almost done
Now in the throws of Winter
the Spring has far to come

Snow Cover

Quiet solitude as the snow gently falls
Frost forms on the window, nature’s art
Cold fingers tracing patterns on the glass
Using memories to help warm the heart.

Down here by the sea
And although it tried this morning
It petered out quickly

Cold against my brow
