Surrender of winter

soft pastels mist the morn

skyward gaze aglow

rising sun takes a look-see through clouds above

tasks at hand reaching out

nature has purpose

daybreak yields its aura

adapting rhythm

the universe spreads heartbeats through icy fields

so gelid to the touch

emotions exposed

morning turns to morrow

gentle touch of warmth

quiets lack-luster alabaster landscapes

the days omens faded

bartering of spring

  3. Franci, you captured the magic of this image in your words. What do you think of this form? Do you like the natural rhythm of the stanzas that give you a beginning, a middle, and an end? ❤

    • Thank you, Colleen, and I love the form. It took awhile for me to feel comfortable with it but I feel the next time will will be easier. Yes, I enjoyed the intent and flow of the form. I love the image you selected because it offered a lot to write about.
