By J Ann Crowder

Sweetest, beryl briars and boreal seascapes deepen like blue veins
 
An intertwining weald and tangled apple-wood touches my mortal flesh, as sea-moons kiss my eyes
 
Moons shine a teal fire, like a shimmering peacock’s feathers
 
Opaque winds leap off chilled, snow-blanketed pines
 
A sylvanwood, dark and obscure, winks a menacing eye
 
Luxuriant woodwind instruments chime nature’s eminent glow
 
An eternal solstitial brumal echoes summer-like flutes on wintry tides
 
A labyrinth of protection ensues
 
A poetic muse reaches yonder sky of sea-heaven, softly lighted by cosmos above
 
By and by, these sleepy nights and snowy, garden forests ever enchant my dreams

Written December 10th, 2016. About winter forests. Whimsical style.

Whimsical words which make winter glow, it may be cold but they banish the woe.
Beautiful poem.

Thank you! I love having fellow poets who are passionate about writing poetry as much as I am. I haven't met too many accept on this page. It's been fun because I'v written more and more. It's turned into something fun and endearing for me.

Like what Robert said - beautiful whimsical words. I had to google a couple for their meanings LOL. So "brumal" means wintry. And "boreal" is far north. Hhmmmm! Thanks Jenifer. Hahaha! In the end, a very nice poem, a pleasure to read!

@Jenifer Wilkinson Crowder: Indeed! Also fun to use them in poems. I recently wrote one "Cotton Candy" where I used some words I really fancied. LOL

I love whimsical moments. Big fan. Spur of the moment burst of happiness, a feeling of sincerety in your heart, simply beautiful
like suddenly seeing "a shimmering spreading peacock's feather"
in all its majestic regal colors. Love all the images in this whimsical gem, "opaque winds leap off chilled, snow blanketed pines".
Love. Delightful dreamy snow forest.

Thank you! It snows a lot where I live and it's has become easy to see it this way rather than dread it.
