A Call in the Distance ( a poem of Hope)

Updated on December 8, 2015
The Wintery chill drifts across the countryside...
The Wintery chill drifts across the countryside...
Crows call in the far distant trees...
Crows call in the far distant trees...
Paleness reigns on this wintery day...
Paleness reigns on this wintery day...
I greet my hibernating neighbor, the moon...
I greet my hibernating neighbor, the moon...
Then a warming sun peeks above the horizon,,, to greet the chilly morn...
Then a warming sun peeks above the horizon,,, to greet the chilly morn...
At last breaks through the gloom to warm the daylight hour...
At last breaks through the gloom to warm the daylight hour...


A sea of whiteness, on an open country field,

Looms in the distance, without perspective,

Black birds...all crows calling, waiting for a reply,

Patiently pausing, as to be their only objective.


Gnarled trees, erected pointedly. on the alba horizon,

Their grotesqueness revealed, as if sculptured.

The bluing sky light spreads widely and afar,

A saving grace for the blandness, well captured.


An eager sun, peering over the blue-white maze,

Greets the morning's gloom, with earned affection.

While a brown deer struggles in steps, determined,

Seeking the warmth amid foliage, its fond protection.


My breath, the only companion on this quiet frosty morn,

Beats a path before me, as if preordained, to guide,

A stinging assistant, incessant, the wind, this day to scorn,

Persists, relates to the chill, wearing whites, as its bride.


A hearty "Hallo"...It's my neighbor, a hermit moon, of the ages,

Coming forth from seclusion, in hibernation, its light engages.

A flickering wave of my dark gloved hands and then a farewell,

While I return to my world, as if in some imagined Wintery spell.

 I return to my thoughts, as if in some imagined spell...
I return to my thoughts, as if in some imagined spell...

      One of you finer works. I REALLY like this and am spellbound by those same feelings that I recall in the northern climes.

      Whonu, this is one of your best. I can feel the quiet as my imagination lingers on the images of the narrator's vision. Spectacular display, my friend!

      "An eager sun, peering over the blue-white maze," and "My breath, the only companion on this quiet frosty morn," said so beautifully. So poetically correct!

      Spectacular. I must get warmed up after reading this. How wonderfully you captured that alluring calmness of the white muffled endearing snow covered nature.
