Poetry Friday: January Snow

Well it is the end of January and the PNW has not really seen any snow.  In a way, great. No snow days. I have to leave as soon as school gets out for California. But I really have missed anticipating that snow day, that day that says, “Stop. Breathe.”  So here is a poem “January Snow by John Cambell.

The heavy flakes descend
like strewn confetti,
tossed from
the Great Grey Sky,
this January afternoon.
They parachute safely
through a coarse wind,
dust themselves off
and embrace
the already arrived.
Read the rest here.
BTW,  Your Daily Poem will send you one each day. Love it. 
I participated in the Poetry Stretch at Deowriter.
 Picture Book of the Day is hosting Poetry Friday. Thank you, Anastasia.
Happy Reading.

  1. No snow there? Really? Isn’t that unusual?

    We have a snow day today — but no snow on the ground. Welcome to Tennessee!

    I like that poem.

  3. Thanks for the mention! I’m hoping for a little January snow myself tonight; perhaps John’s lovely poem will serve as a good omen. Feel free to submit your work to info[at]yourdailypoem.com

  4. We’ve had one snow day so far this year and the timing couldn’t have been better — it literally saved my life!

    Hopefully you’ll get a day to “Stop. Breathe.” Don’t give up yet!

  5. Jone,

    We’ve had quite a bit of snow here in Massachusetts since early December–fortunately, no howling blizzards that deposit three feet of white powder.

    I did a poetry post about snow this Friday too…with pictures I took from my bedroom window after our first snowfall in December. I do love the way the world outside looks when everything is covered with snow.
