Poetic Thursday: Don’t Go Out There

It’s time, once again, for Poetic Thursday with Pam, Teddy and Angel Sammy. They blog over at Two Spoiled Cats, and host poetry on Thursdays. If you haven’t, you should pay them a visit.

Here’s the photo inspiration they gave us for this week poem:

And for some reason, I got completely “silly’ with my poem this week:

Don’t Go Out There

Snow covered people?  No, wait,  they’re just trees.
And if you go out there, you will freeze.

Your nose will turn all shades of red,
and you’ll wish you were cozy in here instead.

Next to go numb will be your toes;
ten minutes tops, and they’re gonna be froze.

You could fall in a snow drift up to your chin,
don’t make me have to say this again.

Stay inside and enjoy the view,
ain’t nobody got time to come looking for you.

~These Days Of Mine~

  1. Good job! I knew that photo would generate some goodies – I got silly with my poem too – that photo just BEGGED for “silly” !!


  2. Silly, but relevant with the 20 degree weather outside.
    Your poem was well done!!
    And now I am curious about the mysterious snow lumps!

  3. May seem silly for you but it’s reality for us. 😉 We just had our first noteworthy snowfall Tuesday – a couple inches covering everything and making those bare trees without their leaves look beautiful. Still snow on the ground today.

  4. Yes, silly, but fun! I thought of Abominable Snowmen on the march!

  5. They do look like people ! & it’s funny – I watched a movie last night about 3 skiers who are mistakenly left on a lift when the park closes – & a blizzard is inbound ….
