Welcome my friends on this beautiful morning in a snow covered Wales.

I am so glad that despite the snow you have all managed to make your way here !! That daft Mrs.Pugh over the road said her bunions were playing up and she couldn't get her wellies on !!!She must think me daft because I know that on a Friday that dishy new Baker calls round with his bread van !!

Huh !! She will have her best dress on ; her bright red lipstick and I bet you anything she won't be discussing her bunions with him !!!Oh no !!!!

Never mind we have more biscuits for ourselves now because she would only have scoffed half of them before you'd even arrived.

Right let's get comfy and today's poems are very topical ;I hope you enjoy !!!

Snowflake.

Snowflake

Oh so wondrous

So gently promising

Magical stages of freedom

Gently filling hearts with eternal bliss

Soft horizons reflecting hope

A fairy like beauty

Hearts you do touch

Snowflake.


Source

Soft tender whispers

Near to my heart

Oh how I treasure

Wisdom and hope prevail

Fresh beauty reignites faith

Love and beauty shines through

All my life I have waited

Knowing today would come

Every snowflake a new day;a new life and a bright fresh future.


Source

So dainty her presence

so fragile yet so strong

and bringing fresh hope

in a sweet song..........................


Children play and

so wondrous is the sound

of sweet laughter

enchanting all around.......................


Each chimney pot wrapped

in that blanket of white

and softly melting with life's warmth

cosy and bright ..................


Each long branch

reaching like white tipped fingers

in a fragile enticement

as each memory lingers...........................


Each snowflake so full

of hidden gems

contained in sweet resilience

of life's emblems...........................


Precious is that landscape

so tender,so true;

A promise to treasure

for me and you.................................


Hold a dainty snowflake

so precious so tender;

allow her magic

to fill you with wonder............................



Source

Beautiful snowflakes

Oh so full of life's secrets

Each one so precious.

Lots of love from my little corner of Wales.

      Dear Eddy, I love your snow pictures! They match the beauty of your poetry very well. We had a lot of snow after Christmas; about 18" but lost it in the short January thaw. Today they tell us to look for 6 to 12" so I will be out shoveling again! As long as it only stays around for a short while, I'll be happy with my snow. Voted Awesome, Beautiful and Interesting. Wonderful as always, my friend.

      Wow Eddy! this was one of your best, and all of your poems are amazing! lol! I loved this! snow seems to have the same effect on me too, we got it at the same time as you, and watching it pouring down out of the sky like little white marsh mallows, was amazing! the flakes were so big and soft, and it made the air seem so quiet, I am such a kid when it snows, beautiful poem Eddy, voted up and shared! nell

      Thanks for starting this off with quite a chuckle while describing Mrs. Pugh and the baker!!! LOL

      Eddy - leave it to you to bring out the beauty of this white stuff ! Although I have had more than my fill of shoveling it, your words remind me of the beautiful and serine side.

      This is the winter that was not I'm afraid. Three inches of snow in early December and then nothing since. Sigh! I do love snow, and I love your pictures, and I love your poetry....and I love your friendship.
