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.
