Snow Day , http://www.manfullyalive.com

I was free today, to live the Winter and breathe in,

Air laced with cold, where the trees hung embraced by,

Fluffy, light snow, natures own decore, pattern.


The roads where covered, crystallized feathers fly,

The song of people, many voices, echoing and,

Calling to each other, within the recesses cry,


The snow is glowing in the dark I feel the grand,

Beautified crystals, resting on my lips –lick,

A snowflake alone in his drive to earth lands.


And my hair is braided with white ice so slick,

Snow which is falling and whispering to me,

Live in the sunshine, in Winter’s lore, and flick.


A snowflake from your eyelash, let it be free.

To whirl in the wind and make my eyes truly, see.

  1. The words “my hair is braided with white ice” evoke the small sharp edges of the season. The entire poem in detail and metaphor is visceral. I’m awaiting a snowstorm here in the next few days. I think you’re better at handling them where you are. Which is maybe why your verse is laced with beauty and stimulation from the wintry, snowy day. Life will stop here for a while, which is kind of ominous. Thanks for prepping my attitude.

    1. I cannot describe it well enough. The snow was so light today and I live around a park. The snow coated everything. It was a bit cold but not cold considering it’s end of January. When you drove down the side streets where the trees hung over the street and enveloped you it was pretty. Every twig held snow. Sorry about the deep freeze. It will come here soon enough. Hope your’s doesn’t last too long. Thanks for your comments.
