Shivering Poems

Day 9 of the March Slice of Life Challenge!  Check out other Slicers' offerings at Two Writing Teachers.

More refrigerator poetry.  I posted the second poem I created on the edge of the door of our  refrigerator.  I don't know why.  I guess it was because I could see all the words from which to choose more easily, as they are on the side of the refrigerator.  I still have the first poem up on the front of the freezer door, and I just didn't move this one to the front yet.  No reason.  Maybe I'll go move it.  Or not.

 I kind of like how it travels down the narrow edge of the freezer door.

We have just got to get rid of this snow.  
My spring poems are starting to blossom.
They'll die in this cold!

But to warm us all up - I've put my second haiku in Haiku Deck as I did yesterday.

  1. Donna, I so miss you and your creativity! Thankfully we have the slice:) Do you really have flowers blooming? Mine are just starting to push out and I can tell by their tips they do not like what they are feeling.

    1. Yes, it's great to be able to stay in contact slicing! We don't have any signs of green or growing out here yet! I've just got the bloomin' poems!

  2. Love your haiku...the flowers would feel the same here. It's been an awful winter. So cold that we feel like we'll never be free of winter's icy grip. Poems like yours give us hope...love the refrig poetry!

  3. At my new home I have a stainless refrigerator, and you know what that means, no magnets on the front! I miss the canvas in the kitchen! Love this, and the haiku deck too. Those shivers, so true in March. I guess the spring poems will be coming, won't they?

  4. Between the magnetic poetry and the Haiku Deck, I would be busy all day long. Your poems are harbingers of the blooms escaping the trap of icy snow.
