Dreaming in the Snow

Tall pines.
Crisp scents.
Bitter cold.
Fresh powder.
New footprints,
soon gone.
Dreams of the crackling fireplace
and steaming hot-cocoa.

Swept Away

PROMPT: 1 Photo, 20 Words  | GROUP: Poets and Wordsmiths

Winter
Falling snow
Pelting hail
Dying trees
Burning campfires
Single footsteps
With sharp edges and icy detailing
Forever alone
To be swept away
With the next wirlwind of white
Powdery
Snowflakes

Whispers among
the dizzying abundance
of thin-trunk trees
staggering high;
a ceiling and carpet of snow

Infinitesimal,

Yet these lofty silver sticks
Are so elephantine, 
My admiration exceeds eternally.

Wanderer

The snow crunches;
The wind whistles.

My breath fogs;
My legs sore.

Don't know where,
But must keep walking,
Wandering.

Through the pale snow, they walk alone.
Why? To no longer be alone.
With the company of trees, 
they walk.

Snow

PROMPT: 1 Photo, 20 Words  | GROUP: Poets and Wordsmiths

Tall, thin trees
Snow all around me
Fluffy, white, cold
Encasing the ground
In its soft, motherly grasp
Tenderly touching the trees
Sprinkling all around us
The
Lovely
Comforting
Snow

lost in the winter,
snowflakes f

                         l
the white blanket covers me,
freezing my skin
and loving me within

wintery whispers
are heard from above
all are words of love

trees tall 
and small
shield me from the
 beasts of the world

lost in the winter,
snowflakes...

Alone

PROMPT: 1 Photo, 20 Words  | GROUP: Poets and Wordsmiths

White
Everything is white in exception to the brown bark of the trees
The trees
They tower over me as if I am nothing
The ground
It crunches under the soles of my shoes
Even the sky is white
White like the snow compacted on the ground
The snow from the sky falls
Falls onto the leaves of the tree
Slowly it drifts down to sit on the ground
Sitting. Waiting
Waiting for my shoes to compress all of the fallen...
