Poetic Light Snow: Seasons’ Seeds of Change

Marc Latham’s latest Folding Mirror poem was inspired by the current cold spell in the UK, with snow on the ground in Leeds for the first time this winter. It seems ironic that the most wintrish of symbols should be falling now that the days are getting noticeably lighter; nearly a month after the ‘shortest day’; suggesting that spring is around the corner. Here’s the poem:

Snowcatcher

Late Snow Arrives, All Seasons Leave 
ancient trees three months bare
snow in my hair
but spring is in the air
Easter begins to knock, light lasts past four-o’-clock
old winter is shown the door
sun rules once more
new life dresses Earth’s floor

Today we have a new Folding Mirror poem by Marc Latham, which was inspired by a wispy morning sight, and memories from the Nepalese Himalayas a couple of years ago.  Enjoy!
Flight of Imagination Returns to Memory Destination
sky silk illuminated by dawn rays
diving, falling, dancing, wrapping
over tidal wave of slate surf
travelling by light, flying on imagination
thousands of miles into the past
hiking, climbing, being, observing
powder snow swirl off sunset  peaks
