Winter Storm Ramblings - - -

* * * * * * The day is winter with snow and wind, hiding homes and streets and the trees and rivers, all is veiled in layers of ice and snow, the cars and buses stopped and all is closed. Within my home, my radiant fireplace glows, warm, as the snow continues to fall, and the temperature is colder than the North Pole, beyond, my window. Beside me, my cat is curled in a ball of soft fur, without a care for the weather, and firelight flickers on my rows and rows of books, solitude and peace, within these Victorian walls, this my home, and I contemplate the homeless, the old and feeble, alone. I have electric power and plenty of food, but I know many within my city do not, O, the poor birds, the wild animals, yesterday, I ventured outside. Airplanes and trains are not moving, drifting snow and ice making it dangerous, people stranded, far from home. The clouds hang low, heavy and white, and the snowflakes come, flake after flake, trees bend and branches break, blocking streets, and I cover myself in a warm blanket, and sleep, while a bitter wind rattles my windows, threatening to break in, a red geranium blooms, on my, window ledge. * * * * * _______________________ January 9, 2014 Free Verse 6th Place

    I sat with a cup of tea to read this , Never have I enjoyed a cup of tea so much , The poem was the cream scone that should accompany every cup of tea.
