i walk back through the memories
that collected like dew on the grass.
-Adelaide (Down By The Willows)

to love is a choice. so make it count.
-Cally (Words Passing You By)

we are made of stars,
only in the darkest times our best shines through.
-Emily (lost)

there are stains on my skin
from the adventures that we had.

Wintertime

i. it tastes like 
melted milk chocolate
striped peppermint sticks
bitter coffee

ii. it smells like
sugar cookies baking
dried leaves
cinnamon sticks
fresh, new air

iii. it feels like
ice so cold it burns
prickly pine trees toppled with icy snow
chills that rest beneath my bones

iv. it looks like
embers dancing in the wind
mittens protecting little hands
the world washed clean
dragon's smoke slipping from my lips

v. it sounds like
snow boots crunching in thick snow
children yelling with joy
the crackling of burning logs

  1. Wow! Your poetry is beautiful. I never could work out all the rules of peotry and I gave up learning it. But your writing makes me wish I hadn't!
    I love how you talk about the parts of winter we don't know where I live. We hardly ever get snow here (in fact last winter was the first time I'd seen settled snow)!

    1. Thanks, Sophie! I don't know a thing about poetry really. Such as the rules and whatnot. The reason I love writing poetry is because it doesn't come with tons of rules on how to word certain things. I love it simply because it allows me to express myself fully without any restrictions in its creativity.

      Oh, how lovely! That must have been a beautiful sight to see! <3 Thanks again!!!

  11. Ah, wintertime. It's so nice to imagine winter right now, because it's summer over here in Australia. :) Great photos as always, Eve, and lovely words. They're so descriptive, and I like how you brought out the five senses. Keep it up! :)

  16. It's times like these when I sit back and soak in your words that I wish from the bottom of my heart that our little blogging family could meet and talk and love. We'd have so much to say as we watched the snow fall, and we'd be the tightest-knit group of friends. <3
    Much love, Eve. You really deserve all good things this year.
