Weekend Away

Published February 2, 2015 by Libby

(An Elfje series)

White
snow falls.
Is there enough
to build a snowman?
No.

Icy
Arctic blast,
snow, sleet; biting
rain washes snow away.
Gone.

Wind
roars through
the rigging; an
angry beast out for
blood.

In
the Marina,
on board the boat,
keeping warm. No sailing
today.

I don’t usually post here on a Sunday but this Elfje is the first of the ‘stones’ written whilst I was away. It aslo appears today on ‘By the Wobbly Dum-Dum Tree’:

Flying
to Spain,
from above clouds
look just like arctic
seascape.
