Happy Poetry Friday! (Wondering what Poetry Friday is? Click here.)
I love winter, even though I don’t do any winter sports. It’s just a time of beauty and renewal for me. But this year, for the first time in so many years, I’m not looking forward to it. I guess it’s because my connections with people have almost all been outside for the past 8 months, and winter in Minnesota is not an easy time to gather outside for, say, a picnic. So, I dug out this poem I wrote back in 2007 for a post about Grace Lin’s Robert’s Snow project. It’s much longer than the poems I usually write (and I cut a couple of words here and there to make it fit on this image)! But it’s a reminder to me of the beauty and magic of the coming winter.
And for lots of wonderful poetry, don’t miss the Poetry Friday Roundup with Susan at Soul Blossom Living.
