Montana Skies--By Connie Marcum Wong--United States

Montana Skies

Bison blaze through winter white
In stark contrast with the snow.
Montana skies wrap them in the
Frigid air as nostrils release their
Warm breath while they search
For grasses beneath the snow.
Low fog filters through the pines
As a welcome warming sun rises.
An eagle watches with vested vision.

  1. Beutiful imagery Connie. I alsways love your poetry Robert Hewett

  2. You have painted a lovely picture in this white and cold winter environment, Connie. I love your imagery which transmits a stark contrast between warmth and cold. ~ Regards // paul

  3. Connie, thank you for this picturesque poem. I enjoyed it. It reminded me of a wildlife show I was watching one evening where Bison in Yellowstone National Park were forging for grass under the many inches of snow. Thank you for sharing and continued blessings!
