Poetic Journey - Enough Already

We are rather spoiled in the state of New Mexico.Seldom do we have whole days of inclement weather. Storms sprout over the mountains, dump rain or snow, and move on. The Albuquerque Journal, when I was a kid, kept a count of the days of sunshine each year. And since the sun seemed to shine for at least a part of every day it became quite boring to read the little column.

Yesterday it snowed all day and it is forecast to do the same today. And into Wednesday. Cabin fever begins to set in. So having written no new poem I unearthed the following from my archives. The dreaded winter of 2007.
Enough already

Cold and windy day
Unpleasant in the extreme
Even if the sun is shining
But bringing no
Upon the cold
Snow clad earth

I sat
Morosely at my window
Watching the drifts of snow
Clouds of white ice
Slithering over the banks
Chilling the day
The joy

Go Away
Awful weather
Let winter abate a day or two or three
But no
Says the weatherman
More of the same

(c) Jacqui Binford-Bell

Do you have a poem for this week's poetic journey? One that will brighten the day or spread cheer. Maybe even bring the sun. If not, you are allowed to whine like me. Leave a comment with your url here or on Facebook.

  1. Love the poem, Jacqui! I hope you are getting some Spring weather now...
    I have been remiss visiting lately as I have been extra-super-hyper-dooper busy!
    Catching up now!


I appreciate all kind comments on my art and poetry.
