A Blustery Cold Day

At dawn, when I woke my world was a winter wonderland
blustery, gusty winds were blowing pure white snow into drifts
cold, chilling and icy is the air in this lifeless world beyond my window
down, deeper under my fuzzy blanket I sank, sank
even Snuggles kitty did not take a peak, but
finally, we did get out of bed . . . 
getting a cup of coffee I gazed at my frozen view
hopping on the window sill Snuggles tried to catch a snowflake clinging
inside was so nice and cozy . . . 
just thinking of going out made me shudder
kissing me Snuggles jumped down and ran away
labyrinth paths in the park were buried deep
magnificent, regal and sublime the trees had donned their white gowns
nature knows how to create a landscape beautiful . . . 
over there, yonder is my car beneath that lump of white
painfully, I realize that I am going to have to go out there into the cold 
questioning my sanity I put on my winter gear
ready-   I look like I am going on an Arctic expedition
snow, pure white, heavy and blowing waited beyond my doorway
trembling, I left the safety of the house . . . 
unsympathetic, Snuggles watches from her warm window sill with a meow
violent, a cruel wind almost blows me over, but
whimsical the snowflakes dance fanciful all about . . . 
Xquisite is my view-
yes, winter can be cruel and nasty but so magical too, with
zephyr wild snow storms . .  .

Hello Dear Heart … I find it hard to imagine how anyone can survive in conditions you painted with words so well. This is from someone who has only seen snow once, and had to travel thirty miles for that - thank you Dear Heart for your descriptive verse - Lindsay

Lindsay, thanks for visiting and commenting, well, I am prove one can survive in these conditions, its all about having the right coat, snow pants, sweater, hat, scarf, mitts, thick socks, boots, well I think you get the idea, I am not talking about pretty filigree snowflakes, I am talking about SNOW, but we have beautiful summers although short _Constance

It was in the 60's here and now it is raining. My grass is already green and the buds on the trees are swollen. Spring will arrive here early again this year. It was fun reading about your snowstorm, Constance. What is it they say, "Pull down your pants and slide on the ice"
