Snow Me #Poetry #Nonet #poem

Here’ s my first attempt at nonet poetry (learn more here: http://www.poetrydances.com/nonet.php). My Writer’s Digest said that the most common 1-syllable endings to this type of poem included “one,” “me,” and “man.” Hence, one should try not to end using one of these words. But i could see no way around it. I’ll try again when i’m not supposed to be working. So check back in a year or so. 😉

I am a snowman

I can’t feel my fingers from the cold.

My nose is numb and I’m shaking.

It’s not even winter yet.

How will I manage when

snow covers the ground?

I’m slowly turn-

ing into

a snow

man.

Spring Morning

At 6 A.M.

.          the world’s still pink

with sleepy sunshine rays.

.

The voices of birds

.          sing to me

in the growing light.

.

The air is cool

.          still full of winter.

The crisp taste’s in my lungs.

.

Out in the fields

.          the cows are eating

a breakfast of hay and dandelions.

.

The cows see me

.          and moo their hellos,

sending an arc of birds flapping.

Before Winter

winter poem

Before winter…

I was young.

I blew bubbles

and turned cartwheels

on warm, clear evenings.

 

Before winter…

I was happy.

I sang off key

and laughed out loud

without a worry to be had.

 

But life grew heavy

with each snowflake that fell.

I feel their weight

bringing me down,

numbing my toes

and my feelings.

 

I’ve lived so hard

and loved so wrong

that I just don’t know

who I am anymore.

 

Before winter…

love was what I felt

for my koala bear.

And it was unconditional.

My greatest concern

was whether to play

Adventure or Asteroids.

And either choice was fun.

Before winter…

Mom was still here

to help me through.
