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 . . .
