  • After Snow in the South

    With snow
    southern pines grow weary
    broken by a gust of wind.

    After huddling to brush off countless storms
    is it forgotten privacy?
    or sudden peace?
    that makes old branches say
    Enough.

    Do new distances
    -where ground shines
    barely different than sky-
    tinge their roots
    with fear?

    this green country
    unmeasured for such serenity
    so rarely clothed in white...

    A beautiful and unique southern exposure to a rare nature event. You never overplay LG and when you do it is always a welcomed and anticipated moment.

        This is sensual, visceral and romantic.

        Especially love this last line!

        Hello lunar glide, Old pines donned in vestal white, an unadulterated beauty poetised with your delicate yet distinctive touch. A very lovely poem, indeed. Fond regards, Tony.

                This made me feel all warm and fuzzy for some reason even though it was about snow. I enjoyed this poem very much!
