Poem: When Beauty Calls.

When Beauty Calls

It is not the snow. It is the cold.
Rabid and harsh.
Your breath freezing on your beard as you breathe,
A wiser man might not be standing here,
outside with a camera, just to capture the stillness,
but wisdom is not always your forte
when beauty calls.

  1. Tom, the subtle beauty of the picture is amazing – the hint of nature’s Sepia Tone provides the contrast.

    Secondly, I appreciate your About this Poem comments: “…when faced with beauty, in nature or people.
