A Kind of Beauty

Tarnished winter skies
Polished by white solar rays
Gleaming crystal world

~~~~~~

Babe laid in manger
Immanuel, God with us
Long awaited Hope

Especially like your first offering because of the image you create. Thanks for the read.

I particualrly like your use of the word tarnished to describe the winter sky, that may well be the word I've been searching for to describe today's skies here! Thanks!

The light cleansing the sky of its tarnish is a wonderful image. Well done. God bless!

The first one paints winter so well. The second one is very tender.

Like Crafty Green - I find the word tarnished to fit the winter sky to a 'T'..

I too like "tarnished winter skies" and then the juxtaposition of gleaming crystal. A refreshed image for winter! Thank you too for the second.
