A Concrete Snowman

THE BLACK SATIN HAT SAT TIGHT ON THE YOUNG MANS BALD HEAD. HIS EYES BLACK AS NIGHT STARED INTO NOTHINGNESS. IN FRONT OF HIM WERE 3 PATHS WHERE THE CHILDREN HAD ROLLED THREE BALLS OF SNOW MUCH EALIER THAT VERY DAY. PATCHES OF GREEN GRASS STUCK THROUGH PACKED FREEZING SNOW. IN THE MIDDLE OF HIS FACE A CROOKED CARROT POINTED TOWARD THE HOUSE WHERE CHILDREN SAT LOOKING OUT THEIR WINDOW AT THEIR NEW FOUND FRIEND. HIS BUTTON MOUTH SHAPED FOR HIM TO LOOK HAPPY SEEMED TO SMILE AT THEM AS THEY STARTED TO BLOW KISSES AT THEIR WONDERFUL NEW SNOWMAN. Written by Brenda Meier-Hans 10.27.2014

I couldn't find a recent poem of yours to comment to but I clicked on your BEST poem list and this is top of the list. I guess people love this one of yours a lot, and I agree , it's very special.

Wow, Brenda - such a clever poem presentation in words and concrete imagery of the dear snowman. You had to choose your words wisely to do this. Also brought back memories of kids, grandkids, and us doing this with them. Very nice! Sandra

Ah, thanks Maurice. I'm glad you like it so much.

I love your idea here, I imagine it scaled down so one can't read it unless they look real close. I was playing with my zoom and it does look cool. Great job Brenda.
