In the Dark

past midnight
rafter boards popping
just too cold

Day 27 Late-Season Snow #NaPoWriMo

Thaddeus, caked with snow
Late Season Snowfall


Prompt: “Take one of your poems and, in three places, insert a parenthetical comment…” I used only this much of the prompt found at Cuyahoga County Public Library website.

late-spring storm
{by now, I shouldn’t feel surprise}
snow on puppy legs…face…tail
{how did he get snow plastered THERE?}
don’t sit in my lap!
{ah, well! there’s towels}
