ODE TO FLORIDA
IT'S COLD DOWN SOUTH! by b. Malin
LET ME TELL YOU....by b. Malin
Before I start, I just want to say I just got my "Mac" set up in a new location. It was like losing my best friend for a week....But now we're back and ready to write again. Hooray!
As much as I Love my home on the Jersey Shore.
Of which you all know that I absolutely Adore!
I, b. Malin am not a WINTER PERSON.
Need I say more?
SO, this year, for the very FIRST TIME,
Lover Man and I decided to make like the Birds,
And migrate SOUTH to a SUNNIER shore.
Only instead of flying, like the birds on high.
We took the "PT Cruiser" and filled it to the Sky.
Warm weather air delight!
But alas, alack, I could sit on a Tack.
We are witnessing HISTORY here...
With a FLORIDA COLD SPELL.
Something unheard of here.
Oh Florida, Oh Florida, I've come undone.
I expected to see lots and lots of WARM SUN.
Instead it's windy and not much fun.
I see two pools, one's Heated, the other not.
On the Inter Costal Water Way.
Tomorrow, Tomorrow, the weather man says,
The COLD SPELL is leaving, Until NEXT WEEK.
I'm suddenly at my Peak.
We will walk on the Beach,
And breathe in the COOL salty air.
Holding hands as we look up at the sky,
And take in the Blue, Green Ocean,
With a breathtaking sigh.
And tonight when we turn down the lights.
I'll say a "little prayer" as we HUDDLE under the covers.
For WARM, not hot, SUNNY weather,
In FLORIDA, F-L-O-R-I-D-A.
As I blew a kiss back to my Jersey Shore.
I'll see you in the Spring,
And fall in LOVE once more!
