So there is - reflected from the blinding snow!A nice, neat poem.
I agree with Viv; an excellent poem. Sometimes, less is definitely more.
I enjoyed this. It was tight and strong - and most definitely enough to convey a moment of winter.
You've captured that sense of winter and the pale light—just enough.
Nice, neat essence of winter.Do you ever wish Hope were less self-effacing? I could use a (metaphoric, of course) two by four of hope across the skull now and then.
Thank you all four for liking and commenting on my little winter poem. I'm was surprised when I wrote it that this was my response to the prompt- just glad it worked. I'm off to your blogs now.
A concise poem.Pamela
Just enough light for hope. Sounds like a metaphor for life as well as for winter.Elizabeth
Yes, there is always light enough! Good to remember as we head for the shortest day of the year.
Terrific! It's perfectly penned!
I just love this one, Victoria. Enough light whispered by hope. Wonderful.
Just the right sense here. Good use of brevity.
I love it when someone can capture a profound thought in just "enough" words. Perfect!Mine is here:http://liv2write2day.wordpress.com/2010/10/10/sunday-160-el-shaddai/
I just love this poem and this philosophy of "enough".
I agree with Judy!astral music
i like that last line a lot and i like how brief this is -- an example of just a tad bit of light, like the subject of the poem.
I absolutely love small pieces that get their idea across in few words. This was perfect!
A Solstice poem! You've caught it beautifully.
Thanks everybody for so many wonderful confirming comments, and yes, sb, it was intended as a solstice poem.
