Words for Snow

White Light  (entry version)

the bells toll
the sound ignites

the full moon
the snow
the nights scant light

the inky darkness
closing in
smothering
glowering
moving in

but suddenly
opened
blossomed
free
by snow
catching light
flying free

the snow burns
white
in the night

the quiet forest
the whispering trees
the cold wind
the chilly breeze

the crystal flakes
alight
aflash
the silent guardians
snow
angels
adrift in the night
to shed a small
scant

white light

This is my entry for Olivia (@HorseFeathers) Words for Snow winter art contest.

White Light  (original version)

the bells toll
the sound ignites
the full moon
the nights scant light

the inky darkness
closing in
smothering
glowering
moving in

the moon burns
white
in the
black

the silent forest
the whispering trees
the balmy wind
the chilly breeze

the shooting stars
alight
aflash

the silent guardians
adrift in the night
to shed a small
scant

white light

Interestingly enough, snow isn't the original premise of this poem.
When I originally wrote White Light, it was merely several lines long (whereas the entry version to the left is probably doubled in overall length) and was just a random throw-together of words that contradict each other (as you can read, to the right).

Hoping you're all having a wonderfully snowy winter!
