Orange County Snow

Snow flakes
Shine in the grass,
Sun-sparkles fill the breeze.
White flower petals tumble from
My trees.

Mostly teasing Nan -- it's snow time here right now, while almost everybody else has the real thing.....

Ratleader strikes again!

Ed--Snow has a different name here most times, but I recall a day last year when we had the real thing.

And that's the weather report for today...HeeHee!!!
(Sorry, but that's what I felt like I was doing before I got through typing..lol)

ROTFL... They call their cockroaches "Palmetto Bugs"... Ya think?

I still love it though - It's warm - Warm is good...

Snow in warm places is good...

Ed,

Snickering at your bug joke. Also, it looks like this is  Cinquain Poetry.
I like it and you make it look so easy. Also, did enjoy the poem for content. Lots of talent. Enjoyed greatly.

Yep... need to go rake up my pine needles after the big wind.  Such a shame I'll have to do it in shorts.  These California winters can be so harsh.

Hi, Regards 'n company!

Actually Cinquain IS easy. You get a lot of bang for your buck with it. If you follow the little system that Nan has laid out over in the Workshop, it practically writes itself.

Gradeschool teachers sometimes use it as a way of breaking the ice for kids who have never written a poem.

Of course like any other poetic form, the more you put into it the more you get back, but it's surprising how much you can do with those few simple lines.
