"Winter marvels"         [rubai]


Winter marvels   yet appear

                              in the world

gelid wonders   ever dear

                              in the world


utter whiteness   spread atop

                          each dark twig

every eye must   shed a tear

                              in the world



[first serious snow of the season, finally]

rubai/ghazal/buzzle/duzzle/sonnet/bonnet/sms poem - who cares to classify and toxify?

For this man is a visual poet and should not be required to adhere to some norm devised by someone.

When the time comes when we are able to create three dimensional poetry on the net, this man will truly achieve his potential. AT this time, he struggles.

Snow in February?! Some days back, weren't you welcoming the spring? :)

Dottore Murthy,
you are right at least with your final sentence there. grazie

River,
ah -- but I was mainly musing on spring as a future possibility, as in this:

some say you're coming
should I credit such reports?
news travels slow here

& it's interrupted by snow here

cheers, d.i.
