And So We Start 2015…A poem to set the stage.

January 5, 2015

The excerpts, short stories or poems I will be publishing on my blog this year are a collection of writing exercises, National Novel Writing Month and WIP novels and prompt responses. I would be happy for you to share any of your snippets with me too. Please abide by the copyright on my written work and those of my contributors. As a writing community we must protect and support each other in our endeavors.

My first poem is apt for the time of year – Winter.

winter goddess 2

Creator of Winter

Her cloak glistens and sparkles in the moonlight

Intricately made from icicles and snowflakes.

Gliding across the sky, flakes fall behind her

They increase as they tumble


Blown hither and thither by the breeze

Coating branches, grass and houses alike

With a thin white gauze

That builds layer upon layer


She is cold to the touch

But not cold of heart

Spreading a glistening white cloth

For all to play in and enjoy


Her eyes are the purest clearest blue

With skin as pale as the snow she creates

She is a glimpse in your eye

A sparkle in the twilight
