FEBRUARY FRIEND


A Windy Thaw!

Windows opened wide!

Friendly gusts

Give the Bums Rush to January.

A lone patch of green

Smothered since December

Squints in the sun

Gasps for air

Coughs off blackened snow

Stretches

Yawns

Grinning wide

Tosses a wink

Laughs at its glory to be grass again!

Looking back at previous poetry posts, you are developing a nice series of "calendar" poems.

Skeleton poems are my favorite. The fewer words, the better. At least I'm moving that way with my stuff.

Lots of melting for MN today so this poem was a welcome read. More nasty stuff a-coming.

And just when I thought it was safe I read your lovely poem and then the weather man said More snow today.  On Monday the kids were spotting little green patches of grass like an I Spy with my little eye game on the way to Boston.  Green no more till Paddy's Day

Well, we are getting more snow in Chicago.

Spring will come by July.

Glad you liked the little ditty.

best,

in media res,

I love "give the Bums Rush to January" and "Laughs at its glory to be grass again!" You've captured the month of February.

Regards,

kris
