A January of Snows

A January of Snows

A Poem by Kelly Scheppers
"

...still feeling the chill of winter

"

A January of Snows

 

 

syllables and nouns

leap from my throat

in an ebullient attempt

to define

a love

more beautiful than

a January of snows.

The image brings life to you poem, Kelly. The scarlet against the snow, both beautiful, also cloak beauty beneath. Striking short poem.

Thank you most kindly, Robert.
This felt very unexpected, like I could not fathom what was coming & I felt filled with anticipation as I read, to find out where you were going with this. I find it amazing how you get a reader on the edge of his/her seat in such a short poem! Startlingly original! (((HUGS))) Fondly, Margie

So kind of you to say, Margie. Thank you so much!
Your poem somehow captures that feeling so beautifully.... I could taste it like the fresh snow fall.... :)

Loved the photo selection to complement your beautiful poem...

Thank you most kindly, Ardra!
This gives me the feeling of longing, or that indescribable feeling we have when we look at our significant other, and try to explain them and our love to make sense. Your word choice really seals this up beautifully.

Thank you so much, Travis! Good seeing you again!
It's short, but so powerfully beautiful. Paints a very pretty picture, and I really loved the assonance in "noun", "throat", "love" and "snows"; it ties the whole poem together.

I love meeting new poets! Thank you so much!
Given that no two snowflakes are alike, you are as unique in your verse as two snowflakes melting in the palm of your hand.

...profound and deep. Your reviews always make my day, Charles, thank you!
This brief offering goes nicely with the accompanying picture. It captures a moment that symbolizes a longer period of time, a January containing many snows. It makes one wonder if the poet lives in Buffalo, New York.

Thank you, John. I thought it was a lovely poetic expression.
Short and sweet - the beauty you define in the crisp air and the snow contrasting with the billowing red cape .. This is stunningly beautiful - thank you.

Take care - Dave

The perfect poem in time for Valentine's Day. Just how does one describe such love that is so difficult to put into words? I believe you captured its essence with an image of snow in January and the haunting photo of the young girl in a flowing red cape. Truly touching and a beautiful tribute to the one you love.

First of all, I love the picture you chose! Your choice of "ebullient" as the main adjective in the piece is great, especially in comparing the visuals of the poem. Snowflakes fall in unmeasurable numbers, and your want to define a more beautiful love is boiling, bubbling, overflowing inside of you, unmeasurably. Neat write!
