Featured Review on this writing by Roisin Moriarty

It snowed here yesterday and these are some pictures a friend took while we were out for a walk.

winter-wonderland.jpg

Snow blankets all

like confectionary sugar -

a fantasy land.

Hydrants are toadstools;

we walk on the clouds.

The light is different,

whiter, brighter.

The day is quiet,

sound swallowed

in a blanket of powder.

The road is still dark.

But for awhile

at least

We are in a different land.

 

~~~

I wish it could be as beautiful outside near me as this poem depicts. I have snow, but it's so cold out there your eyelids would freeze to your eyeballs, heh.

The pictures really add to it, but your imagery was excellent in that it would have worked even without them :)

thanks. sounds like your in the arctic. i remember i once traveled to canada and i couldn't believe how cold it was. -20 F. we had to take a taxi to go a block.

hope it gets warmer for you.

Yes I too love the snow youve captured that almost lonley but serene feeling that its white blanket brings, lovely writing love how you compared snow to confectionary and hydrants to toadstools it make me almost feel the place was alive well done!!1

Since I remembered I thought I would check out the snow poem you mentioned. I thought the pictures went well with the poem and gave the fantasy view a realistic view as well. I enjoyed it. Thanks :)

Lovely poem. I like the short lines, the soft sounding syllables, the imagery, especially "the light is different, lighter, brighter" and "sound swallowed in a blanket". The pictures are glorious. Very nice!

not very attached. the poem itself needs a bit of work. actually, i think i'm going to make a few edits now. any suggestions are welcome.
