A Wall of White


A Moment Of Happiness Or Sudden Disappointment

The weather in New England is always changing

This is especially true in the winter months

One day can be in the 27 degrees

Yesterday -2 and dropping

A nice day

The next day bitter cold

A little light snow or a blizzard

Some people do a count down in their head

Only seventy four days till Spring

Living one day at a time

Watching the news

Supermarkets busy

Long lines filled with people stocking up on food

The shelves almost empty

Years ago it made since

This day and age

I don't think it is necessary

Watching the snow rise higher and higher

The high winds

White out conditions

Lots of shoveling and snow blowers working non stop

The snow turning wet and heavy

Power outages happen

Hoping for the best

In a few days the storm will be over

The plows will clear the roads

Soon life will get back to normal

Then I will give you an update

Of my little snow adventure

Tamara Yancosky Moore I love to share each of my new experiences with all that care. We all have so much to offer and in my mind it is silly to keep this wonderful life hidden. Thank you for taking the time to read and comment. It is always good to see a nice friend. Gypsy Rose Lee I know my gloves don't even keep my fingers warm. I guess for this weather you need ski gloves that would be nice and cozy. We finally got a break in the weather and it is back to our normal winter 34 degrees and fifty on Thursday. The weather is an amazing thing. We all deal with it in our own way. Sometimes we are happy other times we can't wait for it to change again. Thank you for sharing and caring. Wishing you a mild winter so you may enjoy the snow and yet not have to worry about freezing cold temperatures. I hope you both have a peaceful rest of the day.

This is a lovely, descriptive poem you have here. It was definitely a pleasure to read, my friend!



Gypsy Rose Lee from Daytona Beach, Florida on January 08, 2018:

Are you sure by some magical force we have not exchanged places? You sound like your living in northern Europe and your weather should be like ours. A thin blanket of snow, green grass around the edges and almost no real winter in site.

Tomez Jelenko London must of been a sight to see. Maybe your next hub could be on London in the winter time. I have never been. Thank you for posting such a nice comment. I am glad you enjoyed my stoem. I write half story, half poem. I created it. It exists in my mind. Then I bring it on paper. Have a great morning.

Kari Poulsen The snow has stopped. The wind keeps snapping at my nose to remind me don't forget I am here too. Beautiful white mounds of snow cover every corner. Much more to come. Off to work and have to leave a little earlier. The roads can be slippery from the ice. Thank you for reading and sharing.

Kari Poulsen from Ohio on January 05, 2018:

Ah, the spring countdown. I had forgotten about this when I lived in California, lol. Only 74 more days. Nice to hear. I can't wait to hear more of your snow adventure.

Tomaz Jelenko from Slovenia on January 05, 2018:

I was imagining London I visited a few years ago...Nice one, thank you!

It is amazing what difference a day makes. Thank you for reading and sharing. Sunny and bright today. Huge drifts left from the strong winds last night. Off to shovel.

manatita44 I shoveled about four inches of snow earlier and now another five inches have fallen. The wind is whipping around. We are very blessed. So many people lost power and got flooded in other areas. Thank you so much for reading and sharing. Wishing you a wonderful night. Dora Weithers The snow looks so beautiful. It is nature and all it's wonder. To much of anything is not a good thing. In Maine where I am away from the water we are o.k. People along the coast got hit hard with snow that turned to rain and high tides. Lots of flooding. Marlene Bertrand I love walks in the snow. I bundle up and I am real warm with a snow suit, hat, gloves and a scarf and a warm winter jacket. I am like a kid except of playing in the snow I have to shovel. I make it fun. Thank you all for your inspirational comments.

manatita44 from london on January 04, 2018:

Interesting. It's a little tougher your way than mines. A bit wet and windy in Germany and a little windy here in London, UK. Still we are more blessed, perhaps, at this time. Stay safe!

Dora Weithers from The Caribbean on January 04, 2018:

I always consider the snow beautiful; but we pay for that beautiful sight. Best to you and all who must deal with the occasional challenges! Your word "adventure" is better.

Marlene Bertrand from USA on January 04, 2018:

Beautiful poem. I can see snow everywhere.

Louise Powles I am glad you can understand what I am trying to say. I love to share my day. In hopes that someone else will share theirs too. In that magic moment I have found a special kind of love. A feeling worth enjoying over and over again for life. It is like a baby's smile. I never get tired of seeing one more. Each time it happens it is new and different. Then I hope to see it again but I don't know when. Thank you for your sincere comment. I realize in our great world we can be doing so many things. I am so pleased you chose to spend a few minutes of your precious time with me. How can I ever express my gratitude and appreciation. Words don't seem to do justice. I know I will write another poem. I will take my time in an effort to show how grateful I am. So if it takes me an hour so be it. If it takes me three hours than that is fine too. I will have taken time which is the most important thing in our life and spent it wisely instead of foolishly. Thank you so much for reading and sharing. What is the weather there? I want to feel different for a moment. Have a beautiful day.

Louise Powles Life can be experienced in so many different ways by everyone. There are certain things we all can agree on. We all are living in the same world at the same time. The things that make it different is that we live in different places and we all have different families and hold different jobs. I try to find what I do different and through that connect with people and show we all have something in common. If it's a simple problem or a solution. If we work together we can have fun and laugh many times in our life. Laughter is one thing that makes me feel good. I hope it does the same for you. Many days seem like the same old routine we wake up, eat, watch some t.v. , read on line or the old fashioned way with a book, go to work, pay the bills etc.. As I look under a microscope I see the same life so differently. Now I see so much more exploring our world constantly finding what makes us happy and what doesn't. I can't thank you enough for finding the time in your day to read my story/poems I call stoems. I have good days and bad days but through it all I am still here. Willing and able to enjoy one more smile. One more laugh. One more exciting moment that makes my spine tingle. A feeling of joy that tickles spots inside my own body I can not see. I try to find a way to love life. Loving all the people that I have the pleasure of meeting. With each connection even if we are not face to face. Each word, each thought if we agree or not. We both are changed forever. In some small way. We have bonded if only for a second. We have found something in life to experience and appreciate. Thank you so much for being a good friend. Today it is snowing and we are experiencing a blizzard. I will go out to shovel many times during the day. I will also be thinking of all the people that live everywhere else in this beautiful world. Thinking what weather they are having and what they are going through. Wishing them to be safe and in a state of constant love.

Louise Powles from Norfolk, England on January 04, 2018:

That's another lovely poem. I always enjoy reading your poetry.
