This road is cloaked
By a Veil of mist,
Lined with gnarled Norway Maples;
Yet alive -
Their spider-like Fingers
Beckoning me forward
Along this ice-broken path.
I walk to my office three blocks away
Fearing winter's grasp
Of frozen steel
And unsalted ice,
That tires cannot escape,
Nor high-heels can walk on;
The dull thwock of each step
Replaced by deep tread boots
Author's Notes: This is an older piece of my senior year in high school, in Poetry class with Ms.Casey teaching. She was a darn good person, always friendly, caring, and always teaching. She showed us a picture of a winter scene and she asked us (class and I) to write a poem about it in 20 minutes or so, and this was the product. Needless to say, I felt quite proud of my work (I always do :) ) , and her face lit up when I read it aloud. It is free-style piece, apart from my more common sonnet works. I filled this piece with imagery, a few metaphors, and a touch of sound devices (onomatopoeia) . I hope you enjoyed it, and always, ...
Blessed be times Three! /l\
