Today's poetry diary entry

It looks a little something like this, based on the view out the window this morning and today's relatively balmy temperatures (we're in the 50s, if you're a US person, and in the 10s if you're elsewhere). But it takes into account the snow predicted for the middle of this week and the return of the polar vortex.

Haze and shadows,
spring-like day--
Soon more snow
will come our way.

Little groundhog
got it right.
This year, winter's
shown its might.

Thanks, Punxsutawny Phil.

My thanks again to my friend Laura Purdie Salas for the idea of keeping a poetry diary (a short, quick poem written (almost) every day). If you are a poet or an educator, and you haven't checked out Laura's website and blog, you really should. Plus, she sends out amazing monthly newsletters for both writers and educators!

Nicely said! Poor Phil's probably getting lots of hate mail. I, on the other hand, haven't minded it so much. Feels like the first real winter in a while. The snow was a bit of a no-show last year.

I've been enjoying the snow, too. It's felt like a "real winter" indeed. The only one I minded was the foot of heavy, wet snow, because we were in Williamstown for the storm, and had to go up and shovel Cherry Hill out a day later, after the rain made the snow heavier still. And that included clearing more than two feet of ploughed snow out of the driveway. Ugh.
