No Hills, No Snow - No Problem
Lauren McBride


Lacking hats, gloves,
boots, coats,
skis, poles,
snow and slopes –
must drive for miles.

Trying rental gear
on icy runs -
edges slip
not safe nor fun.
Skis off. Poles in piles.

Flinging snowballs,

first snowball fight,

snowman, snow angels

by fading light -

camera clicking smiles.

Another good poem. This site is fertile ground for me. After a drought, I wrote three poems in three days and I'm not washed up yet.

We have two feet of snow on the ground here, and it is beautiful.
