A Picture of Christmas

by silvershoes   Dec 7, 2010

She stands beneath a mistletoe
out in the snow
that dangles from a pine tree.
Small imprints on the ground from
booted feet
lead to where she's stopped.
Her cheeks are pink,
her forehead white,
her lips are two rose petals.
And bursting out from a woolen hat
are downy, tawny curls.
In her purple mittens tucked
under a chartreuse coat,
she cups a snowball with
both hands,
and waits...

    A beautiful, little short poem about Christmas. This poem shows true simplicity and I love the innocents of the message. You did a great job once again describing your surrounding but I have come to know you are keen on your imagery. This reminds a lot of older poems written years past, that were simply telling a story. This is what you have done basically. The emotions in this poem range from love to joy to all other sorts of mischevious little ideas that pop into that girls head while she is waiting.

    Anyway I found this poem very enjoyable and a wonderful read. Thanks for sharing. Great job and keep writing.
