Time passages.

Cold

And dark

November

Has now arrived

Nights rent assunder

Loud, bright pyrotechnics

Days short of light, nights coal black

North winds, morning frosts, leaves flying

We watch the old year slowly dieing

Time’s fast passage whips us on to winter.

Florette : Snow

To day I am trying out a form of poetry new to me, the Florette. Check out my blog friends Florette poetry by Jane at Jane Dougherty Writes and Kat at Like Murcury Colliding.

The Florette is a two line poem consisting of six syllables which must rhyme as a poem and internally. So here goes.

Hubby took some videos of Ruby’s morning walk so let’s go with snow.

The Walk.

You don’t quite understand

Yet the touch and feel is grand.

The Weather

Bleak winter winds blow

Into Spring bringing snow.

My big sister told  me  to lighten up  so  here I am trying!

January Haiku

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Damp, dull and  foggy Twilight

Short steps,long steps join,

Head home cozy for the night .

 

Cold fingers, cold toes, red nose

Mist  as  you breath out

Keep moving keep warm, eyes close.

NaBloPoMo : Little Mae and Polar Bear

The Winter Queen of  everywhere  was  a beautiful  soul

Although  she  rules  the dead season  she is the one  that makes  all  things whole!

She  had  heard of Polar Bear  and his beautiful  charge  little Mae.

And  so  while with the forest folk they  were busy  gathering  the Winter Queen came by their way.

 

At once  she  recognised  the tiny  girl and  saw through the shape of the bear that did protect her.

She was sister  to Little  Mae’s Father, she knew  the evil  magic  weaved by a spiteful defector.

At once  she stopped to speak  first  to Polar Bear

Do you remember who you are , where you come from and what  your  charge was when you were there?

Yes answered  Polar  Bear I was body guard  to my  mighty king

He entrusted  to my  care he daughter  Little Mae  his most treasured thing.

The dark witch of the East came and threatened my master

She wanted  to be his Queen  but he did not in any way trust  her.

 

The winter Queen  encouraged the bear to tell her more

She  said  she needed  to know everything  so he was to tell her what he heard and what he saw.

The witch  from the East  used  every spell she  knew

She  was determined  to be   Queen and to get rid of Little Mae  too!
