Ohio January

White icing spread atop cut-out trees,
Shrubs melt,
expose green cutout cookie snowflakes,
Blue skies shove away clouds,
reveal warm glossy blanketed fields,
Sunshine toasts the breeze a golden crisp.
Gazing out the picture window,
I watch as God bakes another day of Ohio January.

    We get the same weather (Pa.). I've been talking to my wife about Florida or Arizona. Somewhere that I don't need a shovel on the back porch during the Winter. You do paint a pretty picture of Ohio January though. God Bless. Vince

    Beautiful imagery here, Robin!! I spent 3 years in Toledo back in the 60's and the winters became more than I wanted to deal with ... smile ... it snows here in Eugene but not like back there!!!

    The creative imagery works well in this poem. Love the interesting perspective of the last line--strong way to end. Blessings to you for sharing your talent with us. Thank you for your kind comment. Karen

    I live in Ohio as well, and I must say that this is quite appropriate for the state. Great job!

    Love your use of food and cooking terms to describe the image of January in Ohio. Well done, Robin. Thanks for sharing!
