January 28, 2014 “a warm blanket”

a warm blanket


snowy snowy night

falling flakes

floating through the frigid air

a blanket slowly settles

softly o’er the shadowy land

lying silent neath a moonless sky

a peacefulness to warm the frozen soul

“winter” Haiku

howling wind spits snow
gnawing at hard frozen bones
ravenous winter

December 25, 2011 “Christmas”



Footsteps trodden upon new fallen snow

make no sound at all

not a whisper in the hush

that blankets tree and field

mountain and valley

hamlet and home

as midnight gates swing silently open

candlelit window sills cast a faint glow on downy paths

lighting the way for Christmas

December 23, 2010 “Winter’s Night”


“Winter’s Night”


snow lies on the ground dimly gleaming

icy fog creeps furtively across the frozen scape

muted moonshine’s frosty glow

gives a pearlescence to night shadows

a cacophonic dirge of silence sounds

for snowbound trees

bowing to a heavy mantle of white

ceding their verdant glory

to the rimy majesty of winter

December 3, 2010 “snow kissed”

snow kissed”



take a walk with me in the snow

across the soft blanket of quiet snow

and listen with me to the hush

that has settled in the valley

on the cedar and pine

and rested in my heart

for I know you are mine

as we walk hand in hand

in the pure white glistening snow


kiss me among the fluttering flakes

falling feathers from angel’s wings

that tickle our smiling faces

leaving behind traces

of silver trickling across the spaces

that no longer exist between us

the melted crystalline passion of our lips

kissing in the shadowless glow

tasting the sweetness of love…and new-fallen snow

August 28, 2010 “snow kisses”

“snow kisses”

snow falls from the grey
blankets the misty mountain
in its frosty cloak

ice-cold hands reaching
across grey water spanning
to escape winter’s chilling

snowflake and river
meld silently when they meet
like lovers’ first kiss

breath hangs as a cloud
between two smiling faces
snowflake and river
