IT’S WONDERFUL TO BE ALIVE!

IT’S WONDERFUL TO BE ALIVE!

Got up because I couldn’t breathe,

Found folks’ heads outside wreathed…

By their condensed breath

Conquering death,

A new day grateful to receive!

Bright shiny outside–although cold

Below freezing makes one feel old…

But ambulating’s

Invigorating,

Walking on white tinged with gold.

I may go back in to stay warm,

Surviving another snow storm…

But flurries are fine

Taking up time

Until signs of spring start to swarm!  :0)

PUFFBALLS ON THE GAZEBO

PUFFBALLS ON THE GAZEBO

(www.bing.com)

Several swollen puff-balls

Upon the gazebo roof…

A couple of birds fly to the ground,

Trying to stay aloof.

One poor robin in the drive

Wond’ring where the grass has gone…

Hopping in salty mud,

Does winter last this long?

Singing to keep warm they are,

Waiting for the ground to clear…

It’s confusing–all this snow–

Gets worse every year!
