Glory of the dawning
Passion in the pines
Gentle greys of sunrise
Spreading out in lines
~ ~ ~
Ice-tipped branches glowing
Midnight’s gloom is lost
Steaming breath of winter
Rising from the frost
~ ~ ~
Birthing of a newborn sun
Whitewashing the sky
Chickadees with cheerful calls
Spread their wings to fly
~ ~ ~



Of Royalty



Ascending sun glints on the hoarfrost.
Diamond tiaras crowning bushes
That yesterday like naked paupers
Shivered across the winter desert.
~ ~ ~
Steaming breath of winter
Rises from limping ragged fences
Now precisely edged with frozen dew
Like old guards with finest fur collars.
~ ~ ~
~ ~ ~
For my 500th post - two poems I wrote a couple of winters ago, and still like.

Happy 500th post.

I don't know if I can last that long. if you have some extra inspiration you are willing to share I would love to borrow some.  
That was a really beautiful poem.
I loved every image, an picture of the perfect dawn.

Rosemary~
My dear .. congratulations on the 500th post.
I guess I figured you'd written a jillion, as I visit your web page often and see so many of your lovely poems.

Bless you and may the merry muse of the mountain continue to whisper sweet thoughts in your ear.
(NOT YOU, DALE !   )LOL !
Love, love, love to you.

Congrats on your 500th post, m'dear ...  

And what a post it was ... very descriptive and true-to-life.  I understand completely how these two withstood the test of time ...

--Kess


 Full fathom five thy father lies,
Of his bones are coral made,
Those are pearls that were his eyes;
Nothing of him that doth fade
But doth suffer a sea-change
Into something rich and strange...


--William Shakespeare, from The Tempest
