A poem on winter

Updated on January 11, 2017

Radhika loves writing poems. She can scribble some spontaneously, whereas some of them are weaved with much care and thought.

Snowy landscape
Snowy landscape | Source

Cool air touched my senses with glee
chilly breeze blew to chill the minds
colors gone dull for the eyes to droop
winter shot casting a novel spell;

Days shortened with dim sunlight
nights stretch for a long epoch
cold and darkness everywhere
creeps into the minds that I fear;

But the sight of snow alight
like pure, white crystals of diamonds
up in the horizon of mountains
drifted my moods and senses;

Snowflakes fall like bubbles of dreams
blanketing rivers, hills and valleys
foams of white bed cheers my minds
and drops of snow falls tickle my skins;

      Hi Harishprasad,

      Nice to see that you liked my poems though I'm not a poet actually. I like fall season as it brings vivid hues in our surroundings.

      Radhika, winter comes alive in your beautiful poem ! Every season is like a visitor. You dwelt upon the gossips of this visitor so vividly. I enjoyed myself savoring this poem. Voted up.

      I'm not a big fan of winter. It's only pretty to look at but chills me to the bone. However, you have penned it so nicely and I enjoyed it.

      Hi ahorseback,

      Though we don't have snowfall herein Mumbai, winter is strong imparting a shivering, cold sensation. This poem I wrote in my imagination.

      Having been born and raised in northern New England one must either love winter or suffer a lot . I think there is a magic in a starry night , cold , fresh winter magic after a storm . Or the silence and isolation of a falling snow !.....well done !
