Prompt 43: A Winter's Day

Thanks to Geraldine of My Poetic Path for this week's prompt, a winter's day. To get us started, Geraldine offers the first stanza of a poem:

Chilled to the bone, the frosty sheer air.
Winter again, unrelenting, inevitably here.
The stillness of a new untouched morning,
Still ours alone to share....

(Click here to read the complete poem.)

Thanks to Geraldine for these photos, as well.

  1. Thanks for featuring my prompt and poem this week. I have dedicated this poem in memory of my brother Wendell, on what would have been his birthday, so a special post for me. The poem was not written about him but I know he would have enjoyed reading this work.

    Hugs and looking forward to reading the different takes on this seasonal prompt.

  3. Nancy Bea - I think your haiku may be the only spoken or written use of the phrase antlered with ice in English.

  4. Geraldine's poem is truly beautiful, and the prompt so timely. :)

  5. Geraldine, this is a lovely prompt for your lovely poem. I enjoyed the trials it put me through, through I just barely got.
