Inclement weather,
Unpredictable forecasts,
Will it snow, or not?

A Haiku-ish

When the cold wind blows,
It freezes your nose and toes,
The only cure is…

Chocolate and marshmallows…

Snow

Snow

A Poem

Crisp white crystals,
Tumbling; falling,
Cold frosty mornings,
Frozen fingers and toes.

Snowdrops peep up from below,
Crocuses burst with colour,
Birds roam the ground for food,
The promise of new life.

White sky,
White ground,
So clean and bright,
A perfect winter’s morning.

A Dog’s Thought

A Dog’s Thought

A Haiku… kinda…

by Nikolay Tchaouchev on Unsplash

Bright eyes look to me,
Oh please can we go for a walk,
But wait! It’s wet out..
There…

How can you make me?
What sort of human are you?
To make me walk in…
The rain.

No, inside, I’ll stay,
Where it’s warm, and cosy dry,
Under the blanket,
I’ll be…

If you need me…

Rain falls quickly down,

The rivers quicken torrents,

And the sky stays grey.

When Winter Comes

When Winter Comes

A Poem With(out) Rhyme..

by Adam Chang on Unsplash

When winter comes,
Bringing dark and grey,
And cold winds blow,
The leaves away.

When winter comes,
Scaring birds away,
And squirrels inside,
Their homes do stay.

When winter comes,
And it’s gloves and hats,
Scarves and boots,
And thick warm coats.

When winter comes,
And dormant plants do lay,
No blossom or blooms,
Til’ comes a brighter day.

When winter comes,
I retreat to my cocoon,
To go out in the cold,
Falls to only a loon.
