From a frosty Christmas Day walk through Princes Street Gardens, Edinburgh:
with frost -
on slippery pathways -
hand in hand
we feel safer
A senryu on a different aspect of frost is on my Alter Ego blog.
Frost for One Deep Breath
Beautiful. Of course, it is all sunshine and 50s in Texas, but I can imagine . . .
I love your word choices. Glitter and glow sound so pretty.
Buon Anno !
Oh, that's lovely. Thanks for stirring my imagination on this frosty evening. God bless.
Really love that first one. Can just see the lovely contrasts and glitterings. Thanks!
warm words from a chilly prompt. thanks! A Laughing Gypsy
These are beautiful Juliet - love the pivot in the first one. Excellent.
I especially like your 2nd poem for the sense of personal connection.
Nicely done, each carries weight and image.
...and I'm scrubbing my car windows to see this beauty :)
Happy New Year!
I like the second one particularly too. Cold and danger contrasting with connection and warm hands.
I love you little feathery emeraulds.
may all of your falls be safe in the new year, Juliet. lovely. yes. stay green and crafty...
Perfect words. I can just imagine it! Happy New Year!
Happy new year, Crafty! All the best in 2008.
no frost here... i need to come to your blog to visualize it!
Both are lovely, especially the sentiment in the second. Happy 2008Juliet!
How a few words can conjure up such a picture. I do hope you have lots more inspiration in 2008, a happy new year to you. x

Janice - I'm still getting the hang of writing tanka - so a particular thanks for that!

You've captured the frost beautifully. I love the contrast of colour in the first stanza & the emotion in the second. Peace, love and happiest new year wishes. JP/deb
both are so gorgeous...makes me want to hop a flight to scotland!
happy new year!
I love the greenfinches representing emeralds <3 Beautiful.
Hi Crafty! The white and green in the first one creates a really beautiful image, and I also love the feeling of connection and support in the second one. Really nice frosty tankas!
These are delightful. I esp. like the second how it warms the heart.
I can see you walking hand in hand on the slippery pathways. Lovely. And greenfinches now they would be fun to see.
Your tanka is so colorful...it is so easy to imagine the greenfinches and the trees glittering with frost...absolutely lovely.
so incredibly beautiful!
