~Silence Times Three~

English: Milltown of Kellas in the silence of ...


No silence this night

The eve before Christmas Day

Excitement abounds


Silence reigns before

The bells peal out their refrain

Announcing the news


Snow crunches underfoot

Breaking the night’s silence

Moon shine lights the way

Frosty Footpath - winter snow

  1. You are a poet and I didn’t know it. A very nice poem. A lady of many gifts to give. It is “a good thing” (that’s Martha Stewart and I’m sure you know) that I happened upon your blog.

    • In my “About” I call myself a poet of little merit–I like to write poetry,but feel that I am not “deep” enough to write true poetry — but I am glad you liked the haiku

  2. Lovely poetry!

    I would definitely say you are a poet!, Or certainly poetically inclined!

    I really enjoyed the third haiku! I sounds like something that would be written in a holiday card, or scribbled and framed in a coffee shop. 🙂

    Adieu, scribbler

    • You have given me an idea–I make some of my cards, so now I have an inscription – thanks –LouAnn

      • My pleasure! I would certainly love to buy them.

        Adieu, scribbler

  3. There is something so calming and beautiful about a snowfall..yes, the silence is wonderful in and of itself.
