Advancing

Rivers of cold,
Molecules of ice,
Frozen balls of air,
Rushing
Across the state
Down I-75
Through the city
Up the street
Past the stop sign
Over a neighbor’s yard,
No tropical dam
To halt them.
Must be
Winter.

micropoem of the day: winter world

The world has become winter. Everywhere it seems to be cold. Arctic ice weather comes even to Florida. The snow hasn’t reached us yet. Yet. But the way things seem to be going, it may be sooner than later. Everybody seems to have weather on their minds. But who can blame them? I sure can’t because it’s on mine.

Still, cold and winter
birds bundled together
the world an ice palace
