Winter’s Dance

Frozen Scene

Winter’s Dance

by Caroline Clemens

The bleak outlook of a cold winter’s day,

Makes waltz’s misstep as slippery ice brings,

Hardened limbs and hearts, like branches and things.

The red heart pulses, while eyes visualize grey.

Can they dance if a mind has gone away?

Echoes past in cathedral loudly rings,

One and two and breathe; loves melody sings.


Stilled and quiet, winter grieves her lost love.

The sympathies of ages mark time in church.

Yet, sapphire souls seek freedom in futile search.

Their lonely griefs covered with knitted glove,

The Winter’s Dance keeps time like bell above,

Unites them through winter wondrous trees of birch.

Loves end lasts forever, not winter’s lurch.


~2 verse, 7 lines, 10 syllable w/ 1,4,5 and 2,3,6,7 to rhyme describing winter, love and the end/changing of both.

My fellow blogger Sally has a Xmas post of authors. Have a look.

Smorgasbord - Variety is the spice of life

Sally's cafe and bookstore

I am very excited and delighted, that two amazing writers who are in the bookstore and who have given me huge encouragement over the last three years, have brought their new books out for Christmas. If you love fantasy and the supernatural then these two books will make ideal gifts… treat yourself or book loving friends and family.

Also D.G. Kaye’s latest book P.S. I Forgive You is free from today until 23rd of December and you will find details later in the post.

It is of course ladies first and just two days ago Tina Frisco uploaded her much anticipated new book Vampyrie – Origin of the Vampire– to  Amazon. So here it is hot off the press.


About the book

What if vampires were not the undead, but rather the dying? What if there were two factions among vampires: the sustained and the unsustainable? And what if…

Whatever you celebrate this season, which for kids revolves around Santa, may it be special and full of goodies from his sleigh.

Labor of Love

Posting this beautiful display of a cover I made for my novel next to pieces from Monet: the luncheon, the gardens, and the train station 1887. I wanted to share this with you. Quite possibly, I may change my cover back to this with the architectural history of worldly monuments and places. We’ll see.

Favorite Things


Yes, these are some of my favorite things! My novel Into the Vines, card with movie picture of Gone With The Wind, vino glass Best Friends, a hand-painted plate w sunflowers, magpie, vine troubled ceramic roof mansion perfect for serving my favorite Holiday meat of turkey, which lay upon the leopard print scarf and finally a plate with palms. Find me on Amazon.





Beginnings and endings come and go, don’t they? Go to  for any author info if interested. This was the ‘Best Little Whorehouse in Texas’ as they might say.

Just joking. I learned, I followed, I played and guess what? I wrote a poetry book. I’m very proud of that. Autumn Quotes by CarolineClemens
