Poem ‘Snow Again’

Snow Again

I grab a cup of tea, set out
to make something of the day.
Snow again, it brings daylight on.
They describe it as ten centimetres
which I still find hard to see.
It’s enough to cover my shoes,
that’s how I look at it
while clearing your little car.
Later, the laptop warms my knee
with Schubert declaring his genius,
when I feel the phone shudder.
A cursory text says the roads
were not too bad.
I look outside at the gathering host,
busy blots of grey and black
on white. An emerging blue.
They know the human is about
and that he has food.

    I love this conversational tone, or this “thinking out loud”, it’s like being inside your head, seeing the world through your eyes, experiencing this scene and feeling there with you, in a light and humorous way. Love it! Great looking blog too, I’m looking forward to reading more.
