Blanketed with Joy

If only your blanket did not extend to my drive way
It was but an hour ago, I removed the thin sheet you provided
Now I must go out again
Why do I curse you?
You spread before me like a miracle
all things purified
You provide a translucent blanket of white
children know your beauty
why do I curse you?
I choose to stay in my insulated castle
looking at artificialy created flames
drinking my instant coffee
Still you call to me
grab that shovel
build a fort, reclaim your youth
be the dad you wished for
A hockey wrink awaits me outside my front door
no skates required 
I Join in the laughter
shake the snow from my furrowed brow
Toss handfulls of fluffy snow from the ground
I see my smile on their faces

I get under the Blanket
How can something so cold warm me so?

    Richard Such a joyful and wonderful write about something so cold and white. Stay under the blankie with a cup of warm hot chocolate. Thanks for the great comment on my Mistrust poem.

    Nary a trace of that fluffy white stuff before yesterday... then we got some, just enough to cover the ground! All gone today but it's coming! Dun-dee-dum-dum!

    Hi Richard, hows it going? Great to have you drop by to read my poetry. I guess not a lot of snow blanketing your home. I wouldn't mind trading locations later on in the year. Have a great weekend,

    Thanks Russel, no snow here at the moment, just sunshine so I had to rely on my memory.
