Blizzard, Blizzard Everywhere

Blizzard, Blizzard Everywhere Frozen branches scratch against the window. Snow flakes flash like daggers through outside lights. Frigid wind comes howling down the chimney. Pine trees take on a wonderland delight. Bare branch trees rocked down to their foundation. Black sinewed roots hold fast in frozen ground. Snow drifts pile against back doors and fences. As more snow is falling, swirling all around. The ocean is a pounding frothy mess Colliding waves throw geysers in the air. Dune fences cannot halt beach erosion. Home owners look on helpless in despair. Traffic lights shine garish through the whiteness Consistent switch above deserted streets. Heavy branches form a cozy arbor In an attempt to stretch across and meet. Commuter traffic ground down to a halt School children still tucked safely in their beds Thoughts of teachers, homework, boring lessons Replaced with thoughts of downhill runs on sleds
