Three Winter Rondelet (Poetry)

Sharp Winds

Such cold wildness

Has spread across the wizen land

Such cold wildness

Has gripped my very mind and soul

With sharp winds freezing my two hands

Like some huge, waving arctic fan

Such cold wildness


Winter Grasses

Rusty blond grass

Spreads far beneath sunny green pines

Rusty blond grass

Under a higher snowy ridge

Wooded with ponderosa pine

Gleaming in a bright white sunshine

Rusty blond grass


Winter Pond

Groaning ice cracks

All across a frozen white tarn

Groaning ice cracks

in midst of long silent meadow

sounding off a sudden alarm

not to fall under this tarn's charm

Groaning ice cracks

Thanks very much Valleypoet! It was cold today but quite sunny--perhaps causing the ice to crack.

Thanks. We have different seasons in a year. If winter comes,can Spring be far behind?

Thank you johly beichhualai. True enough, but each season has its own beauty cold or hot.

What a wondrous but potentially dangerous picture you paint. This is an excellent poem and voted up for sure.

Brief, yet they paint a vivid picture in my mind. Today was a mild day here in southern New England.

Thank you animalman, we're in for more snow and bitter cold in the Rockies.
