Winter Pastry


Luxurious, decadent whipped-cream

folds over earthy-colored edges like a slow dream

with the sloping sides smooth-rippled


Nature spreads white drifts, delicate dazzling

against decorative tufts, brown, gold or green

and also between the countless Zen garden raking

Scattered on the sides, ice mountain ranges baking

in sun from professional knife work of snow plows

    I so enjoy reading your poems – I can visualize what you are saying. Your personality shows thru and I love that. Thanks for sharing with us.


    • Thank you, Marshela! You commented on Winter Pastry…you notice the “food” connotation? Heehee.
