Ah, this is just so lovely, Regis1
Reminds me so much of Nelligan's "Vieux Piano",which I transliterated for CSV and which is now on AD.
Please submit this to me along with the pic for publication in the Winter issue of Poetry in Emotion.

|Regis, this is an absolutely breathtaking poem/Haikus. Even in So. GA I could feel the chill in my bones and wished I could wake tomorrow and build a snowman. Thanks for doing that for me in your wonderful words.

Reveals a magical world

Snowmen greet the passers-by
With their happy grins"

|Regis: Delightful poem as well as picture. I HATE being cold, but I love being inside on a cold winter's day looking outside at a winter wonderland. Thanks for sharing. The picture reminds of someplace I used to live when I was little. Fun memories playing in the snow. A simpler time and place.|

|You are unique with your poems Regis, it would have taken me forever to do a poem like this.

|I normally do not care for haiku, being from the old poets school of "it ain't poetry if it don't rhyme with rhythm." But, this is excellent, Regis: you just might convert me.
Love in Christ~~

|In the dark hours
A white wonderland is born
Clad in velvet snow
My favorite verse. Snow is quite magical as well as extremely romantic. I loved your Haikus and the picture too. I'd love to be sitting by an open window watching the snow fall, especially in a country setting.
I bet your spent endless hours writing, especially on a wintery day. (I'm so jealous!)
