Poem On A Wintry Day

When I went out this morning, every leaf was edged in frost. And on my way home, a few flakes began to fall. Made me feel quite poetic! Schmutzie posted this poem a while ago on her blog, and I think it's really apt, so I'm sharing it with you all.

...and the car started but now it smells like it's on fire. That's how my day started, for real.

You guys are a long way from the endless summer that is Trinidad. Be careful of health. Be careful of wet and snow and cold. Take good care.

And have fun.

My kind of poem!
We've got several more months of this, too...

That just made my day! Esp since you totally got me! (i.e. I was expecting a real poem about snow and frost and all that)

I like to think of it this way...
It took generations upon generations of ancestral meanderings for me to be born in the sunny Caribbean island of Trinidad. This must be for a reason! Bless you oh my wandering forefathers :)

Vicki, Chas left for school this morning bundled up like a ball on a bike! He has a polar face-thingy around his neck, a woolly hat, the works. Brrrr!
