Though a Cold Wind Rages
Lynne Santy Tanner


With a February hint of spring
the early morning sun
takes aim across the trees,
randomly chooses one,
leaving all the others
to toss in purple shadow.

Just the sort of poem I like - filled with vivid images, simplicity, and brevity. A beautiful description for this time of year!

Lynn, in six brush strokes, you painted a vivid canvas. The image was so clear and your ending was more like an expansion of the whole poem.
