(winter Poems) Dreaming Of A White Christmas

Rating: 4.6

Has it all been said?
The Winter Wonderland,
the landscape under coverlet,
dreaming in a soft white bed.

The crack
breaks the underwater silence:
the sound of branches bending
under unaccustomed weight.
See the tips of bamboo leaves
dark against the purity:
cloak of virgin crystals that lies
on all the branches in the quiet garden.

A Christmas scene?
too seldom seen,
relic of happy childhood,
the short-lived beauty
that dissolves before our eager eyes.

Sigh...... the sugar coated dusting of a snow-covered scene catch my breath every time! You captured it all here Jan, as only an artist can. Let's hope we get our dream eh? HG: -) xx

Fantastic imagery. I like the way you relate the passing season with the passage from carefree childhood to that of adulthood. This is an easy 10.

The subtle comparisons between a winter scene and the passing of time as we get older is beautifully done. The transient nature of life and those all important magical memories mirrored in a winter wonderland - stunning Jan. jz xx
