Wisping Snow


Wisping Snow

by: JP Leddy

White gentle flakes fall from above

Disappearing into my clothes and skin

Winter cold brings memories forward

Both draped in smiles and tears

The whiteness that blankets the earth

Sometimes fails to cover the bleeding red

Spilling from a broken  heart

Of  dear loved ones passed on

To the earth below where gravestones

Stand as sentries to liven the spirit

Past the sadness onto the joy

Of the souls we knew and feeling the love

As gentle as the wisping snow

Submitted to the Thursday Poets’ Rally Week 57  (December 1-December 7, 2011)

I also kindly accept The Perfect Poets Award for Week 57 and feel honored to be included with all my peers who were recognized. I love to write poetry and love the opportunity to share it.

To win may sound fun

Learning is to the loser

Smiles to either face

I nominate Neha for this award this round.

  1. Snow is wonderful, to look at, not so wonderful when it lasts for 4 months on the ground and falls every couple of days so you have to shovel it every couple of days, I don’t enjoy ice at all because of a bad ankle break which left me with a metal plate & screws to hold it altogether.
    Lovely piece from you though and congratulations on the award. 🙂

  2. JB, That’s such a beautiful poem. I love winters and the snow and the way it makes one feel all warm inside. Sadly, I’ve never experienced a snow-fall personally. Loved your poem.

    And, Thank you so much for appreciating my poem and even mentioning my work in your post. Thank you for nominating my work.. 🙂

    P.S: Will come back soon and check out your lovely blog!

  4. I really like the tenderness in this piece; to me its a lovely poem. I think of the beauty around and within us, yet the realities of our life experiences. Some of my favorite lines are
    “Winter cold brings memories forward
    Both draped in smiles and tears
    The whiteness that blankets the earth
    Sometimes fails to cover the bleeding red”

    …Be Well
