“Snowstorm”

My beautiful picture

Not yet, but there is always anticipation.  Maybe next Tuesday.

 

SNOWSTORM

 

There is witchery in the night,

Monstrous ghost trees loom,

Every minor twig blasted thick crystal,

Bushes cold-laden exploded willows

Bending in tired submission

To a transformed ground.

 

The dark of a winter sky

A distant rose-pale glow

As if some drunken Aurora Borealis

Has cast her color, dipped low

Wheeled from her northern skies

And settled in for a night below.

 

Commonalities made fantastic

A jolt from a bare frost-parched season-

Incomprehensible mystery before the eye.

Snowfall in Atlanta

SNOWSTORM

There is witchery in the night,

Monstrous Ghost Trees loom,

Every minor twig blasted thick crystal,

Bushes cold-laden exploded willows

Bending in tired submission

To a transformed ground.

The dark of a winter sky,

A distant rose-pale glow

As if some drunken Aurora Borealis

Has cast her color, dipped low and

Wheeled from her northern skies

To settle for a night below.

Commonalities made fantastic.

A gift  from a bare frost-parched season-

Incomprehensible mystery before the eye.
