Winter's Tale

A Poem by Moon's fairest daughter
"

~Love blossomed in my chest~

"
In the chilly 
and icy winter,
with its limited avenues
of sunshine
and evening darkness,
Love blossomed in my chest...


When nature itself was
dying....
drowning....
murdered by the suffocating avalanche of
ice and snow and sadness......

      It was beautiful

Frosty Aspen leaves blowing,
cradled by the North wind....
The sun a pearly speck
in the turquoise sky....
The moon...brighter than ever
shone down.....

Chinar leaves raining 
in the garden of breezes...
Hemlocks, Spruces, Pines, and Fir trees
swaying to the backdrop of
barn owl hoots and
rattling wind in the chimney.....

We read story books all day and 
made assumptions about the future...
In a home of wood, warmth, and wellness, 
we stayed....
                                        .... Forever?
Forever.

Author's Note

Winter is a beautiful canvas according to me! :)

Back here for a little while...I hope to review back as many writers and poets as I can...:))

Notes on the poem:
Chinar leaf :A leaf from an oriental tree found in the cold snowy northern region of India. It resembles the maple leaf somewhat and sheds in the winter.

The beauty of winter contained in verse. I'd never heard of the Chinar tree or leaves so that was an interesting bit of knowledge. We have Great Horned owls here and they call to each other (male and female) each morning, just at dawn, in the coldest winter months. The female's song is loud and high while the male's song is short and low. I enjoyed the read.

I like the feeling this poem conveys as well as the story with its impressive imagery. It conveys a strong sense of nostalgia, especially at the end. Wonderful write, tyfs!!!

Thank you so much for the lovely words!
I appreciate the note about the "chinar" leaves.. I was about to look it up! Such jargon finds its way into poetry often, and i love that you recognized this to be a word of note. I also enjoyed the mood of this poem. Such a thoughtful perspective on a desolate winter.. Actively appreciating its harshness and flow whilst being tied together with description extraordinaire.

I enjoyed this, Miss Shakespeare. I popped over here - been here seven years, though very little time to read. This was a random kiss - I am glad I came and read this lovely poem. Thank you-
