Deep Freeze

Starting off the new year with this week’s prompt at the 1/1/14 Poetic BloomingsIn-Form Poet Wednesday”: the Alouette. Information about this style can be found on the Shadow Poetry website.

Deep Freeze

Winter comes calling.
Snow begins falling.
Temps are increasingly raw.
Bracing for blizzards,
poor frozen innards
beg for an early spring thaw.

Others may laud it.
I won’t applaud it.
Give me a tropical clime.
Warm, sunny beaches,
sand in my breeches,
drinks with tequila and lime.
