c’mon sun

First came the rain

loads of rain

filling up the river behind us

flooding the road beyond.

 

Winds blew in the cold,

and the water turned to ice

falling and standing water alike

became slippery and solid.

 

Trees were covered,

limbs encased

some falling from the load

unable to bear the weight.

 

Last the snow

gentle, silent, soft

blanketing the rough edges

lingering over cloudy days.

 

Today the fog has arrived

shrouding landmarks

making the familiar seem surreal

lost in a dream.

 

C’mon sun

you’ve used up all your options

it’s time to come back to work

spring is only days away.

    I love this. Especially the image of the snow covering the ice “blanketing the rough edges” and the foggy “lost in a dream” world.

    Such rich details! You made winter sound beautiful and something to enjoy – even as we yearn for the sun!

  3. I know you don’t live anywhere near me but your poem tells the weather of my day, my week, oh please don’t let it be my month!
