The winner of the 2011 Christmas Poetry Contest is
A Christmas Walk
By Haunted


a Christmas walk

heavy
brown
boots
red
laced up
boots
they sink straight down
into a foot of snow
though not the same depth

they tread close to the creek
adorned with floating ice
brown boots bracing red boots
careful not to fall in
while trees with bare arms
diligently stand guard

further down
three stately pines
overlook a covered bridge
where the boot prints
disappear

out of earshots
of the winter wrens
and the prying eyes
of the white birth

brown boots sweep
red boots off the ground
ties falling loose
and so without a whisper
the walk is quietly adjourned

Congrats to the winner!
I'll try to write one for next year, in the putative case that I still breathe by then :)

Thank you Qim for the contest!

thanks thanks thanks thanks and thanks
to those who voted for a Christmas walk :)

Also my appreciation to Max and cacian for the kind words.
y/n, so glad you enjoyed it.

I was inspired by a Christmas card I received, so half the credit goes to the artist.

With this beautifully drawn scene
I wish everyone
a winter filled with warmth from loved ones.
