Christmas Night

in a Christmas night sky
the moon dusts winter trees
with steel-silver light


My first time to write for We Write Poems.Β  I didn’t use all the words, but these three lines express it for me.

    I like the idea of moon dusting trees πŸ™‚ It gives some comic relief to the solemn feeling.

  2. I like the image you created of the “moon dusts winter trees”.
    Happy New Year!

    hi. thanks for coming to play with us at wwp. yep, no question, that second line does attract attention. nice. wondering (is gentle wondering allowed?) about that term “steel-silver”, how might it engender something more, more surprising perhaps. (just by way of a silly example… “steel-spoon light”?) (forgive me thinking out loud) again, good to see you here. ~neil

    Hi Neil. Gentle wondering always allowed. I was going for a cold, hard light with the term steel-silver. Thank you for reading my poem and taking the time to leave me a comment. Much appreciated. πŸ™‚
