Today is the eighteenth day of GloPoWriMo and today’s prompt was to write a poem based on the title of one of the chapters from Susan G. Wooldridge’s Poemcrazy: Freeing Your Life with Words.
I have based mine on Snowflakes and Secrets. I hope you enjoy it.
Snow in love
is kissing in the frozen winter
with snowflakes in your hair
and tears in your eyes.
is throwing snowballs at each other
with numb, purple fingers
and discarded red gloves giving life to the snowman.
is being rescued on the steepest hill
with a strong arm around your shivering shoulders
and hot tea thawing frozen lips.
is a text message saying the trains are cancelled
with an obligatory x on the end
and an exasperated “as if they even call this snow”.
