The Colour of Winter

frost on grass

Crisply crackling icy white

clings to umber grass tonight;

pewter wall and pewter sky

with pewter clouds drift silent by,

while robed in velvet, dark and deep,

a cheesecake moon falls fast asleep.

    There is always something so naturally beautiful about your writing & it’s nice to see the photos that inspires it.

    Hmmm–lots of pewter. And cheesecake–you know I was going to make one today, but got overwhelmed with my pound cakes. Which, by the way, taste heavenly–so it’s another of those Beauty and the Beast culinary tales…who knew?? Anyway–I thought you were concerned about winter poetry, mourning the sleeping garden flowers and all? My, my–you can do any season, my dear!! And personally, I LOVE writing/reading winter poetry.

    I always thought that old moon was made of plain, ordinary cheese, but ,nope, it’s not just cheese; it’s cheese….cake. Delicious!
