Winters Yin & Yang at The Pond

Blanketed yet deeply frozen
Serene yet cold harshness
Light yet void of colour
Refreshing yet stagnant of life
Calm yet struggles this season


  1. We have a common thread this fine morning. Beautiful crisp poem, love the chills.

  2. Hello Fair Poet of Canadian Shores,

    A mountain Pirate told us about you. We are artist. At least that's what they call us.

    We'd like to invite you to a member of our very Private Club. We're very selective and only an elite few are welcome on our hallowed grounds. We like you.

    We even have a little 'chit chat' room that might be to your liking. It's rightfully called Dante's Pub. But when you enter BEWARE! You are entering the abyss of the artist mind! You may not find your way out.

    You're welcome to watch from afar while drinking your brew or pull up a chair and join us for a little chat. Be sure and register and then log in. After all, this is a very private club. We don't allow just any wanderer in our midst.

    Don't dilly dally now! It wont cost you a pence. Check out The Artist Challenge and Dante's Pub- that is if your daring and think yourself worthy to be amongst the souls we've claimed?

    Farewell...until we hear from you,

    Master Mike and the Pub Wench
