A Pantoum* on winter snow storm

An early morn’s blanket of snow

covering the landscape with pure white

No brown-death of leaves and flora

to remind all of warmth of yesterdays.


Covering the landscape with pure white,

colder North winds blowing down

to remind all of warmth of yesterdays -

snuggling close to the heating stove.


Colder North winds blowing down

A snowstorm brews without;

snuggling close to the heating stove

as hot cocoa simmers its aroma


A snowstorm brews without;

within there is a coziness

with hot cocoa simmering its aroma.

My love and I enjoy each other’s warmth, watching.


Within there is a coziness

no brown-death of leaves and flora;

my love and I enjoy each other’s warmth, watching

an early morn’s blanket of snow.

Ah... ...a winter snowstorm; it reminds me of my childhood in the Peace River Country of northern Alberta (Canada). We have had no snow to speak of here for a couple of winters now (southwestern British Columbia). I appreciate your poem and the poetry lesson as well, Jackie. Thank you. Love and peace to you,
