storm warning

I crave that covering over
everything raw
snow promises

the blindness of winter

how small things together
change what is seen
to iced monochrome

About Susan L Daniels

I am a firm believer that politics are personal, that faith is expressed through action, and that life is something that must be loved and lived authentically--or why bother with any of it?

    I long for a sleek sheet
    to settle on my mind
    frost sworn

    the forgetfulness

    that would make of my memory
    agony and ecstasy
    numbed snow

    I live in CA and do miss snow this time of year. The best I can hope for are stormy days that make it seem a bit like winter and bring out the warm lights of x-mas decorations.

  5. Very lovely images in this one Susan. I like the “iced monochrome”.

    Lucky… we had snow early in the week, but it’s all gone. No snow for Christmas this year.

  8. It’s a poetic love fest 🙂

  9. I’m with Claudia, I wish I’d come up with the phrase ‘iced monochrome’, wonderful, Susan ~ love the whole approach and identify with your craving ~ a blanket of snow makes everything sparkle 🙂

  10. And I get new words all the time I am here. Hm, ‘iced monochrome.’ You should teach English as a language at the PhD level. 🙂
