Winter Fib and A Music Tip

down collars
defeats chilled walkers
defines the downside of winter

Snow was assaulted today by warmer air and falling rain. As the snow disappears, any light reflection it might have produced turns to dark and gray.

As luck would have it on this gloomy day, my mailbox yielded the ordered CD, Quiet Paths, from fellow blogger Christine. I cannot describe her soothing and uplifting music but there are samples on her web site.

Inserted into the slot and scheduled for looping, it rang true and clear. Soon I was smiling broadly as if on a sunny vacation.

I highly recommend checking out her Earthpassage web site to purchase a CD if you're so inclined. Service is wonderfully friendly and prompt.

I love your poem. It is perfect. The downside of winter is a serious downer full of drizzles, darkness and defeat.

You did the fib as a take on Pleiades (is that the word) using the same first letter for each line... Your word choices were so concise. This just makes me want to go home to Washington, despite the "downside of winter".

I love the way this looks just like a drop of rain falling and settling into a puddle.

And the way all the D sounds pound!

So well done!

Downer by intent, but not by words.
