The leafless trees shiver in the bitter wind,


the endless stream of clouds consumed the last bite of blue.


Translucent raindrops speckled the windows with a life of their own,


while skydiving hail bombarded the earth beneath our feet.

    Sime fine images. Short but vivid. I like it.


    WELCOME FRIEND ~ Thanks for your first poem ~ NATURE is always a good choice. This is an Early Winter poem and each line paints a memorable scene ! 1. Leafless tree always a stark and enigmatic image 2. Clouds an infinite subject of poetry ~ especially their ability to obscure the sky 3. The translucency of raindrops defies the description of the poet and the reproductive skill of the artist (attempt both if you don't agree !) 4. HAIL is the ultimate enigma ~ neither fish (rain) nor fowl (snow) ! There is much more to this free verse quatrain than immediately meets the eye ! Thanks for sharing ~ BRIAN. Pleas check my poems ~ Thanks B.

    Good write. Nature has so many sides and always shows us its glory, if only people would look.

    A little taste of what's to come in a few months for me. But Nature in whole is a playground for the adventurous. Which is why I like to go out with my Canon when time allows me. Wonderful write.
