snowy sidewalks [poem]

Avatar Author: gĀ²LaPianistaIrlandesa Read Bio

the sidewalk huddles
under a snowy blanket
ankle deep.

the snow, bored of its sameness,
clings to my black boots
for a little adventure.

it covers the tip
in a converse toe,
looking for something new.

i cross the quiet street,
hushed in respect,
knock off the snow in one stomp,
and continue on.

    Wow! So evocative, so much atmosphere. I love it. (Shouldn’t ‘sidewalks’ be singular ‘sidewalk’?)

    Ah, yeah it should be singular. Thanks for catching that; I just kind of whipped this up in a flurry (no pun intended).

    HA HA! A flurry. HAH! that’s so.. snigger PUNNY! AHAHA! ahem I mean- this was so cute in a sad way. The snow wanted a little ride only to be thumped off by the oblivious pedestrian >.< There was a nice flow to this poem and the imagery was there while still allowing room for the readers’ interpretations :)
