As we enter the season when we have snow, this poem is my impression.


Black and white
   Shades of grey --
Brilliant snow
  Lights the day

Clean and bright
  The winter scene
Pearly snow

  Is everywhere seen


Yet the snow

  Is still not pure

Formed from dust

  Like mortals, here


Dust is woven
  Crocheted to snow
And robes the world
  From heaven, below


Frozen and still
  The sleepy land
Under snowy blankets
  Till Spring, again

Winter is so beautiful, and snow seems like perfection. But everything has a flaw, and with winter, it lies within its cold touch. Great poem.

Liked the way you evoked the many shades and hues of this stuff called snow, and also the analogy between humans and snow. Yes, someday the Ultimate Spring will arrive. Great poem!

Beautiful poem and imagery. It is a shame that snow does get a bit tainted from pollution though.
