Holidailies Prompt: Have you ever had a winter without snow?
I’ve had winters when it didn’t snow, it didn’t even rain
those empty winter skies made the outdoor decorations look flat and lifeless so
I stayed inside with the curtains closed and ate frosted cookies shaped like reindeer
I’ve had winters when it did snow, the trees were hung with ice
and the sidewalks where slick and treacherous,
there was no doubt in my mind that they wanted to pull me down and
break a bone or two.
I’ ve had winters that were so brutal that I actually looked forward to
the Spring and beyond that the Summer
and I hate that time of year because
all I do is sneeze and wheeze .
But those brutal winter months left and the drury winter days
slid by without a trace
and they were gone before I knew it
and after they left, I always felt a little empty inside.
