Daily poem: Florette 2

I tried to get a photo of our brief flurry of snow on Wednesday,  but there wasn’t enough for it to show up, plus my phone has now started taking mini photos.


This day ends in cold snow;

you stay—warm hands, fire-glow.

I used to do lots of things I didn't much enjoy. Now I am officially a writer. It's what I always wanted to be.

  1. I do like this format I might have a go , I am prisoner in the house my husband does want me going out in the snow because he is afraid I will fall and break my back for a third time…..I am stir crazy in the last fortight I have left the house twice!!!!! Arrrrrrrrrrrrrgh! ❤

    1. I know how you feel. Since Christmas, I have been to the supermarket once with husband to get stuff for the new year celebration, and to take Finbar to the vet. Apart from that, I haven’t been further than the ‘garden’. Have a go, it’ll get the grey matter stirring (horrible image!) if nothing else.

  2. I did, but getting out would give you inspiration and clear the cobwebs. If there’s still ice on the ground though, maybe wait another few days. Spring’s coming, honest 🙂

  3. They’re threatening snow after the rain and wind for us today–it does look cold in your photo, but it also looks like spring is waiting to burst. (K)

    1. It was the coldest we’d had it this winter—0°C. It didn’t last long thank goodness! By lunchtime the wind had turned and spring was fighting back. Hope your snow doesn’t last too long.

  4. I do like this form–another lovely one, Jane.
    We have the same weather as Kerfe. We’re expecting a nor’easter, and I am already anxious about falling trees and no power. Then it might end in a sprinkle of snow for us.

    1. I like this form. It is very very short, but there’s enough of a challenge in it to keep it interesting.
      The wind was terrifying last night but there doesn’t seem to be any damage.

      1. That does seem true about the form.
        I’m glad there was no damage from the wind. We’re in the clichéd but apt–“calm before the storm” right now, but since we’ve had trees come down, I’m scared by strong winds.

      2. Wind is scary. I was lying awake last night listening to it. There would be long periods of silence then I would hear it coming, getting louder and louder until it was roaring. Things in the attic start banging about as well as the trees waving and creaking. I hope you don’t have any more trees come down.

      1. Fortunately we are only getting the wind here in the mid-Atlantic. The New England area is getting a nasty mix of what they call here in the south, “weather”.
