Burning

the day awakens to snowflakes falling
thick socks  and woolen sweaters bury my liking
hockey and curling fun, and snow sleighing
sipping an iced pina colada in my bikini ruby
i'd rather be, sandy beach and sun tanning 
until the winter wind blows by

  10. Lovely poem Heaven. You can have sandy beaches if you come to Australia, lol! Although snow has its good points I'm sure...

  12. Oh, me too...I would love to spend Christmas on a beach in the sun, although I think it would feel really weird. ;) Lovely poem and Happy Christmas to you.

  13. So cold here now, snowed a little overnight and will again tonight but, not as bad (so far, thankfully) as they said it would be. It's the walking on ice anywhere I can't take anymore.

  14. Yeah we had a bit of snow last week but it's since past. Snow does tend to heighten the holidays a bit, but I'd rather be on a beach any day of the year, holidays included. Nice write. Thanks

  25. Though I write of winter and snow this week, there is no snow where I live now, but I'm originally from Nova Scotia so I remember that longing for warmer times.

    Lovely write!

  28. Heaven,

    You've got it right! Once upon a time, white Christmases were fun. I'm with you.

    I hope the spirit of the season brings happiness.

  29. Nice write! I live in Florida and today it's 70 degrees :) I wish it was colder :)

  30. LOL! I like the contrasts in your poem. ;-)

  31. Ah, Heaven, we share a similar relationship with winter: a near-necessity for our home areas (and Christmas). But that's enough, no more, thank you.
    Someday, when I grow up, I shall winter in the south (maybe of France). Hey, it's my fantasy, right?
    Lovely work, my friend. Have a wonderful holiday.
