Sullen morning light Spitting rain crashes sunset Snow tiptoes on night — Today’s weather!
March clouds Windy wisps On a blue sky Will you sprinkle a soft white glow? Or are you really going to bury us in snow? — About the poem: So pretty, I thought, on this 50F day. Then, I heard the forecast of an upcoming snowstorm or two. Wait a minute!
Huge buttery flakes Silent frosting overtakes Only to melt away — About the poem: Not technically spring yet, but we are having some spring weather. In Colorado, that means in the same week, high 16F, high 65F, big fat sloppy snowstorm, then high 60F again. When the snow fell yesterday, it was the kind where […]
