As the Next Storm Churns

Updated on October 17, 2013

The soft texture of a flannel sheet,

May warm your bones as you sleep,

But given extra winds to blow,

The arctic breeze will numb your toes,

Source

For all who dwell as Eskimos,

Burning ambers against the cold,

Can you see the reason for harsh times?

Freezing out disease and grime;

Source

Mother Nature is no fool,

So we must live by her rule.

And as the next storm does churn,

Our wandering minds will live and learn.

Source

Button down all the hatches,

Shutters, doors and what latches,

Do you see her eye come close?

She calmly stops to take a pose.

      Sounds like a good plan, but as you write, not likely to happen. The same with our hot summers, I'd like to estivate over ours.

      Thank you, BlossomSB. With the recent rains our pretty fall leaves are nearly gone. Winter is heading our way soon. I dread cold weather. Wish I could take the winter off and watch it from my window, but it's not likely.

      Just at the moment I love the idea of cold weather, although it's only spring here and we've just come out of winter. From what we hear on the TV New South Wales has bushfires all over and so many homes have been burned, and it isn't even summer yet. Love your poem.

      It's rainy here, too, Jackie. Thanks for stopping by.

      Brrrr...great timing on this as the wind and rain beats against my window pane. Very good. ^
