  1. I like this one.

    Should there not be a comma after ‘expected’; or am I reading it wrong?

    Well done – music is numbers, and poetry is music.


  3. Mother Nature sure has been fickle thus far…we’ll see. 🙂


  4. J says:

    Yup — that’s January 😉
    And you’ve worked with a (dreaded!) syllable-counter very well here. So glad you gave it a shot — it’s wonderful 😀

    Yes, January is full of fickle weather for sure. But, this is such a pleasant way to depict that truth.

    Very wintry, reminds me how we like to make ourselves upset by expectations…, but sometimes they’re helpful!


  7. Wow, hard work this poetry. Well done…a picture of January for sure

    This is tricky but you’ve worked it so well! Very apt title too, Viv 🙂


  10. It is expected but dreaded. We’ve had several days of it. I am ready for some sun. Your poem is lovely break in this gloom.
