Winter Collaborative Poems

On Winter Solstice, I challenged my social media friends to contribute winter words to a collaborative poem. (A collaborative poem is simply a poem with many authors.) Well – wow! I wound up with 161 donated words! I decided rather than to put them all into a single poem, to break them up into several poems. I enjoyed clustering the words into patterns, and finding images to match. Here are some of our best:
