Winter Glory Proudly Wears Her Cloak of White

Winter Glory

Winter Glory

Winter Glory proudly wears her cloak of white.
Her moods are varied, and always on a whim,
O’er the land she quietly journeys at night,
Her robe covering all she gently touches,
Her cloak a lovely surprise in morning light.

Days will come when impatiently she enhances
Everything with her large snowflakes like jewels.
Not giving up as she whirls and dances
All along her path, matters not where she falls,
Gently bestowing kisses, flirty glances.

Winter Glory loves parks with trees so bare,
Their lovely shapes and arms outstretched,
To receive her blessings and proudly share
The beauty of her robes, her dazzling jewels,
Glistening ground blanket shows she was there.

When the bitter north winds blow with fury,
The snows are released in relentless force.
The heavy falling snow makes the days blurry.
And the night’s angry howling winds compete
For dominance over Winter Glory.

Yet she always comes through a blizzard shining,
When the bitter harsh winds have blown their last,
Gentle falling snow creates that silver lining
Once more upon her beloved bare tree limbs,
Beautifying the park, pristine snow blinding.

I have always liked to write. It is important to me that writing comes from my heart and soul. When writing poetry, if I do not feel a spiritual connection to what I am writing on, I will discard it and go on to something I can connect with on a spiritual level. I live in the moment, I write from the past or beyond the veil. When writing fiction I go with whatever inspires me at the moment - it could be funny, sorrowful, romantic or sometimes done with the use of colloquial language from mountain folk or other cultural regions. I began writing content online in 2007, starting with BellaOnline - A Voice For Women, where I was the Native American Editor, Folklore & Mythology Editor, and the Appalachian Editor. I also wrote articles for The Examiner, Daily Two Cents, and Yahoo. I am a freelance writer for Fiverr. I am currently an author on HubPages, a member/author of the Maven Coalition, and Senior Editor and an author for The Creative Exiles. Most of what I write takes a lot of research and I love it. Even if it is a fictional story, I will research for accuracy in whatever it takes to make my characters, their era, their location, etc. become realistic to the reader. I hope you enjoy my works. Thank you for visiting.
