D-Verse poetics-A January winters day

Snow on the ground

On a dark January morning

The icy breeze

Cuts through me

Like a knife

I bundle up

In a hat, scarf and gloves

Brave the icy morning air

To take my dog for a walk

As we return from our morning stroll

Snowflakes land on our noses

I take off my dog’s lead

And watch him frolic in the snow.

Snow crunching under my feet

I join in the fun

After a half hour of playing in the snow

We’re both ready to go back indoors

For a nice warm mug of hot chocolate

Now in out of the cold

I shut the wintery day outside

I will watch winter from afar

From the safety of my recliner

Where I now sit reading a good book.

  2. You have described the perfect way to deal with a snowy day! I think of my daughter and her family with a dog that will be one in March….the exhuberance of a dog in snow just has to warm your heart and make you feel like a kid again, right? But oh, that lovely reclining chair, hot chocolate, a good book, and I’d add an afghan on my lap to the scene. Enjoyed this very much!

  3. Oh, Carol Anne, that January winter day was so familiar! We have had an icy breeze for several days now that indeed cuts like a knife and I too have been bundled up in a hat, scarf and gloves. Your poem has a strong appeal to the senses. Yes, a hot chocolate and a good book, please.
