ice cometh

I feel her cold air
upon this gray October day
moving across the plain
tumultuous clouds roll
snow feathers float
gently in autumns fall
the ice is near
sighs winter, returning home
the snow melts
surrendering to mother earth
her warmth slows icy domain
her soil thirsts

as I seek the sun
blue-gray sky appears
over rocky horizon
purple peaks under hazy white
huge flakes create silhouettes
asymmetric serifs in the sky
I know the ice is near
harbingers of winter float the sea

the ice cometh
she will reclaim her earthly domain
snow covered glaciers and crags
grassy meadows, canyons and glades
all become frozen tundra
her heart beats coldly beneath
melting oceans of retreat
she shall remain in her polar axis

I feel ice

Beautiful, romantic, soft...and written well, as it is difficult to make a reader feel the way that you have when " ice cometh."
Reviewed by Karen Vanderlaan 10/12/2009
wonderfully expressed-i can feel her too!
Reviewed by Kate Burnside 10/11/2009
so evocative and felt, Dale. Makes me want to curl up with your atmospheric words under a pile of warm leaves and sleep til warmer comes. Another cinematic write that is easily seen as well as perceived. xx
