Theme Thursday: “snow”

banks

 

 

Homebound

 

That Christmas—

after the party,

we were tipsy,

weren’t we?

And it was just

impossible

to resist

flinging ourselves

(all down-puffed)

backward

into that battlement.

Sinking in—

the mind-numbing cold

rousing our minds, numbed—

just enough

to orchestrate

our arms—our legs

into seraphs

of snow.

  1. This was a lovely poem…I can imagine you doing snow angels…Growing up in the tropics meant no snow for me, although I've seen and been in it for very short periods since.How is your cat?
