Silver Frost

winter-magic-1Breath mists in frigid air

Cold hands, warm heart

Wintry kisses melt icy lips

Beneath mistletoe boughs

In silver frost.

    • Hey Dewin, I hope you had a magical Christmas 🙂

      Thank you for spending a little of your Christmas day reading and commenting on my poetry. It’s always appreciated, but ever more so on Christmas day – a delightful Christmas gift 🙂 I’m so glad you liked this poem – between you and me, I’m kinda proud of this little one lol 🙂

      “…warm enough to melt the frozen heart of Jack Frost himself.” – I love this 🙂

      Wishing you the brightest of blessings for the coming week and on through the new year!

  1. Hey Sammi 🙂

    Why thank you kind lady! 😀 Christmas Day did indeed flurry down the chimney and flare the heart of the hearth in my humble home 🙂 (Or was that just the tail end of Hurricane Barbara lol) One gift this year was left by the fireside by Santa…a Yankee Candle Melt Warmer, which is currently infusing the air with scents of Christmas Eve, Cranberry Ice and White Christmas 🙂 (Love the names they give to pooling wax lol )

    Ah yes, your poem was a delightful read and I can understand how and why you admire it as you do. A little treasure to warm my late afternoon, thank you…20 small words and each a gift packaged as one present. So perhaps that was two gifts I received this year and not just the one left by Santa 🙂 Thank you Sammi.

    I chose to spend Christmas tucked away from both the family and the furore of festivities to quietly contemplate the year just passed whilst I sped a course across WP spending a little time visiting friends and associates. Leaving a comment or two here and there felt much like writing the gift tag on a present, a pleasure I always enjoy at Christmas regardless of my attendance in family circles or not. As a consequence, I did not miss out on that little enjoyment 🙂

    I hope your Christmas charmed and enchanted and left you merry as a red berry on the evergreen holly branch of life 🙂

    Best wishes in all ways for always and always. Take care 🙂

    • Hey Dewin 🙂

      I do sometimes wonder if those engaged in marketing are actually poets, for the choice of words they use, and the names they give things are often poetic in nature. As for the Yankee Candle Melt Warmer – an amazing gift; perfect to infuse your holiday with inspiring seasonal scents. I myself was burning the Christmas Eve melt on Christmas Eve 🙂

      Your Christmas sounded full of peace and calm. A day of contemplation – delightful! And no doubt, all your comments and messages dotted over WP were warmly received. I know mine was 🙂

      I did enjoy my Christmas day – thank you 🙂 And after a glass or two of wine, I was as merry as a red berry lol

      Wishing you a bright and blessed afternoon and evening 🙂

  2. Hey Sammi 🙂

    Thank you for warmth and kindness in your reply 🙂

    I guess poets will always cast their spell wherever they are able and reach for the perfect source for inspiration whilst doing so. I trust you enjoyed the scent of Christmas Eve as much as I…it was the perfect infusion to welcome in the big day 🙂 Glad to know you shared a similar melting moment other than the wine sweetly doing its thing 🙂

    I’ve been on leave from work since Friday last week, my calming time of contemplation and peace quietly stretching to 6 consecutive days, with its conclusion coming at 6.30am tomorrow morning. It will be a shock to the system to have to return back down the mountainside and back into reality. I have enjoyed it all as I hope you have also enjoyed your time away from the daily grind. I trust you are refreshed and ready to welcome-in 2017 and all that she may have in-store for you. Best wishes 🙂

    Enjoy your evening Sammi C. Take care 🙂
