December Noon



winter sky turns vitreous
stumbles starkly near

losing its limpid look
it gears up once more

inundates the north
with a foot of white debris




Poefusion Friday 5 prompts with these words (I added definitions for some)!

debris
winter
vitreous ~ of, relating to, derived from, or consisting of glass
stark
limpid ~ absolutely serene and untroubled -clear

you describe winter very well, I thought you use the words quite well, I had to look up vitreous and limpid, the 5 words does lend itself to the cold weather, doesn't it?

Tumblewords, your poem makes me wish to see a big snow but, maybe on Christmas or just before. We don't get much around her anymore. But, then I would want it to leave soon as I don't like the cold weather. Wonderful poem. You captured winter well. Have a nice day.

I am glad you added the meanings. You came out with a perfect description of just before a storm.

Hi- I'm here from Lucy's blog, but I've seen your comments on many other writing sites I visit. This poem of yours is appeals to me. I think it's creative how you used the word choice prompt and added your own flavor.

I like the vivid imagery used with few words and the alliteration. Nicely done. I like to write poetry, too, but haven't posted much since Poetry Thurs let.

The poem works well when read either with or without the prompts in mind.

Superb use of the prompts. As Dave says, it works just as well without having them in mind.
