White Sides

White side mountains,
winter has been there
left the snow trash out,

will be a long time
before spring comes
to pick it up,

snow people will come
like dogs,
looking for pleasure snacks,

will spread it around,
rub it on their bodies
for scent,

howl at night
and keep the trees awake,
do their mating dances,

then in anxious packs
will make tracks,
to touch each rise and valley,

instinct to scatter
what winter has made
leave nothing in quiet order...

Very impressive work here Mr. OWG.  Your work always has impressed me, but dang I think you got into some cool vibes this afternoon.  Don't mind if I print this one out and tuck it away beside the other one I have.  Right next to the one about sis visiting the soldiers and kissing the white stone.  YOU REALLY NEED TO POST THAT ONE!
Wonderful images babe.  

On the wings of words our spirits fly....and our souls are free.

Thanx GS...you might have to email the other one to me if you got it...I don't keep many of em...I do remember it, but I think it went south with a hard drive or two.

I sure appreciate your reads and comments.

As soon as I get home will do it, but then I really expect you to post it to though.  It still makes me shiver every time that I read it.  Primo stuff babe, this one about Jim Dickey....  and darn I just took it out of my wallet a few days ago...didn't know your words touched me that much did you, I carried it around and showed it off!(hey for  you........anything....*wg*)

I love the offhandedness of these thoughts. A verse beyond the beaten path and that's a very good thing. The snow people are like our tourists here. Really great write.

Sincerely,

Yes, you tossed this into the snow, in a most effective way.

I love the intial softness
when the snowfall first appears
although I have not had the privilege
for years and years

since it's winter, again...
this makes for a nice re-read...
