November And The Wintertime.

Updated on November 17, 2014

Good day one and all.

I hope you all had a great weekend and are ready for the oncoming week.

November here in Wales is wet and windy ; however we need to look behind and through the initial gloom. Because in November we are surrounded by a golden maturity and a feeling of sharp crisp beauty which urges us on to bigger and better things.

As you go about your days look behind the rain and through the wind and you will see a beauty that can only be found in our winter months.

Then each and every morning recognise and inhale this beauty deep into your soul.

Believe in Winter's strong, powerful and wondrous message.

I hope you enjoy today's hub.



November ( Acrostic)

November ( Acrostic)

Need and emotions

One world in a warm golden maturity

Valliant hearts a-knowing

Eventual dawns reunite

Mesmerised by hushed wonders

Bearer of gems galore

Echoes of yesteryear

Replaced by jewelled dreams.


Wintertime(Freeverse).

Source

Warm and inviting

this season of life

today tracing the outline of winter.

Destinations beckon

tomorrows unknown.

An artist

painting

in

virginal white

frosty

crispy

against the softness of winter's snowflakes.

Timeless dreams

clear dewdrops

being

those tears of life.

Unmasking feelings

of awe

of love

of sweet seduction

covering the flaws

so pointless.

Golden warmth

lingering on

those silvery sheets;

moments of molten lava sizzling

awakening a love so powerful

so strong

so true.

Angels singing

their lullabies

lifting hearts

igniting souls

and dispersing

that gift

of freedom

to rejoice

in

that epiphany of life.

Moments Cherished ( Haiku).

Source

A velvet touch swells

Clandestine dreams seductive

Each moment cherished.

Winter (Rictameter)

Source

Winter

That falling snow

Swirling through evergreens

Brightness lingers through each darkness

Dewdrops glistening are those silent teardrops

Around and around swirl those dreams

A sunrise so promised

To treasure

Winter.

I hope you enjoyed today's hub and here wishing you one and all a great day ahead.

Eddy.

      Astounding beauty from your precious words, your seasonal photos

      and one of the most incredible songs ever written; sung by talents,

      one which left us all too soon and another whose life is in wretched

      turmoil.

      This is another incredible hub.

      Thank you, Eddy.

      Eddy, I think my favorite line is, "an artist painting in virginal white". You add such beauty and promise to the winter season. An amazing perspective, indeed.

      Stay warm!

      We've had such a mild November haven't we? Bit too wet of late, though!

      These poems are beautiful; your words bring out not only the beauty of nature but also the emotions that go with it. I identify strongly with that which is why I love your work so much.

      Your poetry is always useful to me as well for it enables me to relate to nature better.

      Again, very creative way of writing poems with beautiful pictures.

      Just to let you know, according to a survey conducted by Readers Digest in 2008, November is voted the worst month by Canadians for many reasons. One reason being that the colourful month of October has just gone by and Christmas and winter activities associated with snow and ice are still far away.

      However, as you may have guessed, I don't agree with the findings of the survey hahaha.

      Lovely Eddy, I enjoyed this autumn stroll in Wales and then the Winter wonderland. Delightful words and photos. I love the Haiku.

      Here I am in Spring with Summer approaching - admittedly loving the warmth it brings.

      "Warm and inviting ..."

      It certainly is - November is the kickoff of a great season here (Thanksgiving and Christmas) in the US (probably the best of seasons) and I look forward to it every year. Lovely poem and beautiful pictures.

      Today is actually a cold crisp but sunny November day, I've been out in the garden taking some autumnal images for a poem I'm writing. Your poems are beautiful and inspirational as always, great music and images. I hope you're having a wonderful day, my beat always.
