       It's WINDY and cold, the skies are dark and ominous but it's still so beautiful. Welcome winter!

    dotsWinds of Changedots


    The Winds of Change
    are blowing
    bringing with them Winter

    Is that howling
    the wind
    or the crying of the trees
    as their colorful cloak of fall
    is stripped
    and they are left bare

    Are the rains the Heavens
    crying the tears
    of sorrow to see the seasons

    Winter may seem
    wicked and cold
    but see how
    he takes the coat
    of foliage
    and covers the land
    nestling the womb of
    life till spring
    and how the
    tears of Heaven
    are the giving
    waters of life

      This poem just gave me the chills. I loved how you worded it and I could just see the seasons changing in my head. This was definitly unique! You write really well.

      Change, something I need desperately in my life right now. Winter depresses me so much, but doesn't it do that too most of us? "tears of Heaven are the giving waters of life" so illustrious.

      I liked it... but a little too fast in transitions for me. Maybe I'm use to my own style. However a very nice piece that describes, what I am going through right now, winter and cold hands...

      I definitely enjoyed this piece. the imagery you used was a perfect choice to display the beauty of winter's coming as opposed to the oft-times displayed dark, cold and dead nature that most other writers decide to use when writing about winter. You very vividly and quite beautifully captured the positive, brighter side of winter, and i applaud you!

      What a beautiful way of looking at winter.. instead of the dark, damp, cold that we tend to describe it by.
    Also, the first and second stanza was amazing.. with the sadness of the trees and heaven crying..
    And then you give us a look at winter's warm soul.. with its comforting blanket.
    So nicely done Tif.
    I enjoyed !

      there is something about winter, to me, that is romantic. I can never pin it down, maybe the chill in the air or the smell of rain...

    Anyway, I totally love the opening line.

    ARRHH!!! My computer is acting up.

      I like the idea that change is a constant. My love of Spring is contingent on Winter being wicked. And seasons are a relative reflection of those cycles that make up life and why we're called human.

    the last stanza is great Tiff, thanks for sharing, very fine!

    peace and love,

      This is another wonderful seasonal poem you have here! I like how you have written this one and the perspective you give to winter. To think of how "he" takes the leaves from the trees to blanket the earth till spring, and how you call the earth the womb is very good. It really is true that we could view the earth or more appropriately...mother earth as the womb that gives life. The leaves provide the insulation to keep her warm until spring arrives. I love that! Very good stuff! And I also like how you question whether the wind is howling or if it is in fact the trees crying as they are stripped of their leaves. This is a wonderful prose, a very creative and interesting view on why nature does what she does. Nice work! Take care.

      As beautiful as it can be I really do not like winter.

    Nice poem Tiff....and dare I say a nice (sound) effect at the start.

      Hehehe, this has really good flow, and perfectly awesome imagery. I have nothing negative to say, but just check punctuation and add commas, semicolons, etc. at the ends of lines and stanzas. Also, capitalize the beginning of each line, even though it's weird feeling. Keep writing, because you rock.

      We can all learn a lot from the change of the seasons. It is such a pity that global warming is slowly but surely removing the distinction of each. If this trend continues, the change of seasons will be no more.

      I really like the unique, original idea of this. Change is a great thing, and it's nice to see writing about a different topic than what is usually written on elite. Keep up the great work!
