Poem Inspired by Photos of Dawn on a Snowy Day

Today we have an epic palindromic Folding Mirror poem by regular FM poet, Claire Knight, that was inspired by scenic seasonal photos taken and shared by another poet that has also graced this site with words, Sarah James. 

Thanks to Claire and Sarah for creating and sharing the images and interpretations, and I hope you enjoy viewing and reading them.  

Sarah James Winter Scenery
A Winter’s First Light

first light of day
breathes gently across
the laden skies of winter,
a duvet of swans’ down clouds,
masking a sun-rich blue void beyond.
Poles and pylons rise towards the heavens,
reflected pink hues dance light,
a veil of stillness descends:
as above so below

silent wires cross the expanse of silence

a universe at one:
a veil of stillness lingers,
reflected pink light dances hues,
poles and pylons rise from the earth.
Masking a life-rich black land beneath,
a blanket of pure crystal snow.
The hidden furrows of winter –
breath chilly across
frost glinting by day.

  1. We could have done with ‘the duvet of swans’ down’ this winter. Pols and pylons have stopped me taking many a snowy scene – except in one case where I wanted to catch the row of pylons and these were blotted out by falling snow.
    Thanks Clare, Sarah and Marc.
