April Snow

Since it’s April, I decided to try writing my April slices as poems. I woke yesterday, the second day of April, the day after Easter…to snow. Although there was something magical and beautiful about watching those fat flakes fall, I’m ready for winter to be over.

I always get inspiration from Amy Ludwig Vanderwater at The Poem Farm. Her theme for April is the constellation Orion, and yesterday she wrote a terrific list poem, so I decided to try a list poem about the snow. I tried to capture my conflicted feelings but also create a picture in words and phrases.

Later in the day I purchased twenty small daffodils. Come on, spring!

    Rose, I love that your poem led you to purchase daffodils – a sure sign of spring. We have a winter storm warning ALL day . . . so it’s not over YET!

    I almost wrote a poem today as well. I love this one – particularly the line about cheating spring. My daffodils have survived the snows and are all in bloom. I am inspired to write a poem….and to buy more daffodils!

    There is hope in seeing those yellow heads peering through a blanket of snow. But, yes, it is time for Spring.

    Yes, the snow might be beautiful, but enough is enough! At least you have bought some sunshine to bloom in the house.

    I hear you — I wish you could see my home. I literally have 8 vases of daffodils throughout the house – and it is a small house!! Can’t wait until Monday!
