Poetry Friday: Snow

IMG_1077.JPG

Thank you Keri for hosting today at Keri Recommends..

Temperatures drop
We wait for arrival of snow.
Temperatures drop
We bundle up in warm clothing.
We want to see how fast sleds go.
No fun sliding down the hill slow
Temperatures drop

We had our first snowy-icy storm of the season yesterday. Some districts closed and others like mine called for a two hour delay. While the television stations called the event “Snowvember”, there wasn’t much snow. But I wonder if this foreshadows what to expect this winter.

Happy Friday.
Happy Poetry.

Poetry Friday: Snow Wishes

Snow Wishes

Intricate
snowflakes fell all night.
Silent treasures,
one by one
stacking upon each other.
Winter wonderland.
~ Jone Rush MacCulloch, 2013

This poem was posted in December. Yesterday, my wish was granted. School let out early, I arrived home safely, and more snow is expected today and tomorrow.
