Ruby’s Snow Song ūüíú

Silently the the white stuff fell

It called to me, it did compel.

All night the quiet, white spread

As I lay snoozing in my bed.

Finally I could wait no more

I got my humans up for sure.

Out into the snow white yonder

The landscape fill my head with wonder.

Off across the field I scurried

All around the white stuff flurried.

I danced and pranced all around

My ball with me new youth I found.

Playing about just like a puppy

Then home for breakfast, I am so lucky.

42, Day Twelve.

Jane Dougherty has come up with a theme for May . It is 42, now Jane describes it thus: “42 after Douglas Adams’ answer to the question of life, the universe and everything. The form is like the Cherita in its structure with a bit of added interest. The first line/stanza asks a question or makes a statement that begs a question, the second stanza/two lines sets the scene or the background, the last stanza/three lines answers the question or resolves it in some way.

Why does snow fall

Why down not up, that’s all

I need to know.

It needs to smother everywhere in white.

To silence the loudest night

Dancing flakes flow.

Day 17 Essence Snow.

The hush came suddenly

Virgin no stain, snow flurry.

Day 17 Jane Dougherty’s Daily Essence Poem Challenge.

UK in the Blizzard.

I did a little rewrite of this loved carol to show how the UK is affected by bad weather even though it’s expected!

UK’s Bad Weather

In the bleak midwinter not a train will run

Motorways are carparks,it is no fun.

Snow is falling, snow on snow

But we are never ready you know.

The is gas running short as is electricity

The whole country grinds to a halt when we hit minus C.

I’ve not seen any gritters with their flashing light

Icy rains now falling it will freeze again tonight.

In the bleak midwinter eastern winds do blow

We all need to check our old folks, care for them to show.

Sadly we are never ready however expected

The shops are stripped of staples everything affected

Okay moan over, people have pulled together, volunteers trekked to blocked Motorways to bring them hot drinks and food. Carers and NHS workers struggle into work. We all keep an eye on our elderly family members and neighbours. We are British we will survive ūüíú

Florette : Snow

To day I am trying out a form of poetry new to me, the Florette. Check out my blog friends Florette poetry by Jane at Jane Dougherty Writes and Kat at Like Murcury Colliding.

The Florette is a two line poem consisting of six syllables which must rhyme as a poem and internally. So here goes.

Hubby took some videos of Ruby’s morning walk so let’s go with snow.

The Walk.

You don’t quite understand

Yet the touch and feel is grand.

***************

The Weather

Bleak winter winds blow

Into Spring bringing snow.

Ruby’s Snow Day.

It snowed, it snowed all day

It didn’t stop or blow away.

Ruby was so very excited

Come walk with me she invited.

Wearing her coat and carrying her ball.

She was snug and didn’t mid the snow at all.

Here we are at the end of the day

Ruby all snug dreaming of her day at play.

Wordless Wednesday: Snow but not this year.

Stream of Consciousness Saturday : Enthusiastic Snow

Prompt¬†for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is: ‚Äúenthuse.‚Ä̬† Add a prefix or suffix to it or leave it as it is and go to town with it! Enjoy! ¬†Here is ¬†the Ping back!

Late  snow day

first snow

There  they  were  all dressed  and  ready  for  school

The ¬†weather man ¬†had ¬†forcast ¬†snow ¬†….the ¬†weather ¬†was cruel

Having  other  ideas! Mum  had a bright  enthusiastic  smile

Come  on she  gushed, you will enjoy it, she  promised, touching  wood  all the  while.

 

Lunch boxes in hand  she  ushered them off to the  bus stop

To  enthuse  them with her mood  she  cried  lets  bop!

They  started  down  the hill  draggin their  feet

Suddenly ¬†the ¬†snowfakes ¬†began to fall. Here ¬†is ¬†the ¬†snow….sweet!

 

By  the time  they  reached  the back door  they  were singing

Mum had seen the snow  and her  work  she was  ringing.

Through  the door  they burst  full of  enthusiasm

They bubbled  and  squirmed  around  a not  so  enthusiastic  Mum!

Here are the rules:

1. Your post must be stream of consciousness writing, meaning no editing, (typos can be fixed) and minimal planning on what you’re going to write.

2. Your post can be as long or as short as you want it to be. One sentence ‚Äď one thousand words. Fact, fiction, poetry ‚Äď it doesn‚Äôt matter. Just let the words carry you along until you‚Äôre ready to stop.

3. There will be a prompt every week. Linda will post the prompt ¬†on her blog on Friday, along with a reminder for you to join in. The prompt will be one random thing, but it will not be a subject. For instance, ¬†Linda ¬†will not say ‚ÄúWrite about dogs‚ÄĚ; the prompt will be more like, ‚ÄúMake your first sentence a question,‚ÄĚ or ‚ÄúBegin with the word ‚ÄėThe‚Äô.‚ÄĚ

4. Ping back! It‚Äôs important, so that Linda ¬†and other people can come and read your post! For example, in your post you can write ‚ÄúThis post is part of SoCS:‚ÄĚ and then copy and paste the URL found in your address bar at the top of Linda‚Äôs post into yours.¬† Your link will show up in Linda‚Äôs comments, for everyone to see. The most recent pingbacks will be found at the top.

5. Read at least one other person‚Äôs blog who has linked back their post. Even better, read everyone‚Äôs! If you‚Äôre the first person to link back, you can check back later, or go to the previous week, by following my category, ‚ÄúStream of Consciousness Saturday,‚ÄĚ which you‚Äôll find right below the ‚ÄúLike‚ÄĚ button on Linda‚Äôs post.

6. Copy and paste the rules (if you’d like to) in your post. The more people who join in, the more new bloggers you’ll meet and the bigger your community will get!

7. Have fun!

Here comes the Snow

http://vanessajackman.blogspot.co.uk/

The snow is on the way, I heard someone on the radio say, it might be here today but it is certainly on its way. The temperature is going to drop we will all hear the thermometers go plop! Because the snow is on the way and the temperatures will drop!

The cat will not go out she’ll sit at the window and pout, the dog will not be put off he will leap about no doubt!He will get covered with snow he loves all that you know! But the cat will sit at the window and pout she will not go out in the snow.The squirrel will go mad looking for all the nuts that he had, he will not take a brake until he finds them all. The Magpies and the other birds will watch him from the wall, they will not help at all they just will just watch him from the wall¬† .

                                                                                                                        We will never now from whence came the snow, the children love it so, playing in the snow. The cars will all go slow, crawling through the snow. People laying low to avoid going out in the snow.Ringing into work the daily grind to shirk.

So bound by the snow the trains will all go slow that’s if they even go because they are bound by the snow , stop and go. The buses will not run waiting at the bus stop but they’ll not come. No they do not run like they do in the sun. No they all go slow when they have to run in the snow.

Well now it is quiet, the moon and snow make special light.All sparkly in the night now everyone’s at home and they have finished the snow ball fight. The twinkly twinkly light the sky is clear all the star have taken flight

Let’s get this right on this starry starry night when all the stars have taken flight. The cat and the dog know what is right. They just know¬† how to behave in the snow . The squirrel is all curled up safely now because he knows it best to keep warm in the snow to stay in not out to go..
