Looking Forward – A Tanka

Happy Thanksgiving, everyone. Cold winds are racing across the foothills on this fine Colorado day. The sky is a pale blue, and a white haze of clouds has crept over the mountains. Ron is working in the kitchen preparing a fabulous meal to commemorate the day. The holidays are hard for me each year, and … Read more Looking Forward – A Tanka

The End of Summer – A Tanka

Autumn winds entreat – slivers of silvery moon burnished in the slough, fairy nymphs crying raindrops mourning the end of summer. Colleen Chesebro Happy Friday!  

Brisk Autumn Mornings – A Tanka

Brisk autumn mornings – fog and dew lay summer bare, while blue sky kisses paint lacy frost on spent blooms commencing my day anew. by Colleen Chesebro

The Weather Witch

I have been told that I am a weather witch, a purveyor of the elements. Strange weather events take place where ever we live. Somehow I maneuver the climate. Like the blizzard that blew into Colorado Springs last evening through this morning…

Silver the weather witch

The winds blew hard, battering the north side of the house. Boards creaked and groaned as the upstairs part of the house swayed in the wind.

Snow flew sideways down the road. The cold winds of autumn blew the early snow into drifts deep enough to swallow a man.

Great clumps of cold, wet snow filled the glass on the windows making it impossible to see outside. A dark gloom settled within the house.

Hard icy pellets of snow battered the back door.

The wind blew harder, burying everything in its path in a silent white death. Ice daggers hung from the shutters on the house.

2015-11-17 12.15.20

Suddenly, the sky cleared into a deep crystal blue while the snow crystals glistened on the drifts below.

Winter is Coming

Truth be told… it’s not even winter yet!

Thanks for stopping by. I’ll see you all again!

Autumn’s Last Gasp

Autumn breathes the last gasps of the season, as leaves of brown and gold drift from the treetops – a blanket of decaying warmth. Grey skies steal the color from the day, mourning the end of another time of year. The darkness envelopes and caresses lulling the earth to sleep, held in the cradle of … Read more Autumn’s Last Gasp

Autumn Sea and Sky

The autumn sea and sky meet at blue-grey swells, blending one into the other; while the days and months of the year slowly slip asunder. Gentle waves lap at the beach washing clean the white sands of time; as shore birds chase and play in the ripples of the tide. November winds blow lightly, fickle … Read more Autumn Sea and Sky
