Stormy Day

In  windswept prairies winter 
  snow comes plummeting down
Its freezing bite stings the cheeks
While eyes can hardly open
 Stinging crystals make you blind
 wind whirls and twirls these pebbles
Whipping them with great speed
 hands turn blue in minutes
while you forget to breathe
bitter cold bites the bones 
while your slowly turn to stone
 snow piles become white dunes
all will become impassable soon
Blocking all within its path
North wind blows his fury
Blowing out his wrath

    phyllis, I see you have yet another nature poem. I think this is your forte. YOu always describe the natural world so well. be it stormy, rainy or sunny, you are in tune with it and make it very visual in your poetry. Glad to see these two new posts today.
