That's a lovely poem. We've been dreaming the same types of dreams here in North Central Kentucky.

Wonderful. We all need one of those this (incredibly, horribly, cold) winter.
Yes - when it comes to cold, I am a wimp. What can I say...I grew up in the south (and I think I still live there). Snow on the ground for a month??? WHAT is THAT about??

That bad, eh? You have got to holiday in sunny Queensland the next northern winter! Love it, Jena.

I didn't know she hit "publish"!! This was a writing exercise that I gave my students in our student "writer's guild" and I usually write something also. The theme was turquoise, and this poem jumped out. I asked Jo to draw an umbrella for me. The students liked it, so I told them I'd put it on the blog!

Jena,
Great poem,I give you an "Attah Girl" for meter and word choice. A poem with the word chartreuse in it is a brave little poem to send out in the big bold world of color poems like "Green Growth the Holly" by Henry VIII.:Green growth the holly, so doth the ivy. Though winter blasts blow never so high, Green growth the holly. JMP
