HIGH WHITE WALLS

HIGH WHITE WALLS

Frigid mountains window-high

Leave the view of only sky…

One consolation,

Extra insulation,

For the apartments nearby.

Winter’s blizzard blow

Piled great mountains of snow…

Partial proof

Of snow from the roof,

So fear of collapse would go!

Wind  buffing snow pile tops bare,

All that snow be somewhere…

Look in he lees

After the breeze–

Great need for road plowing out there.

SUDDENLY…HAIKU

SUDDENLY…HAIKU

Unused salty brine,

Unexpected snow and rain…

Uphill traffic jams.

Winter faeries dance,

Overnight blizzards dump snow…

Plowmen cross themselves.

Out of mist a girl,

Brightening eyes of a man…

Warm thought–cold shoulder!

Near birds twittering,

Hungry hawks circling slowly…

Hiding resources.

MIDWESTERN SNOW

MIDWESTERN SNOW—WHEN WILL IT GO?

 

The East is warm and sunny,

The Midwest weather is funny…

Shouldn’t this bring

A hint of spring,

Instead of more blizzard bunnies?!?
