To carry on our love of all things poetry and to keep the energy high, I will continue to post poems by the contributing poets to the anthology until the Colorado Book Awards on May 21, 2017 (info by clicking here).

Accumulation
The sky spits and sputters.
Unique and frail,
Flakes dance around,
Flakes drift, they flutter.
 
A flake here,
A flake there,
Snowflakes everywhere.
 
White sparkles alight,
Dusting the grass in white.
It’s peaceful and serene,
Silence abound.
 
A flake here,
A flake there,
Snowflakes everywhere.
 
Inches of snow start to appear.
Time to run to the store,
Stock up on milk,
Stock up on beer.
 
A flake here,
A flake there,
Snowflakes everywhere.
 
Guaranteed fun,
The children squeal with glee.
School is cancelled,
And sledding is foreseen.
 
A flake here,
A flake there,
Snowflakes everywhere.
 
A blizzard they’re calling it.
Shovels and blowers are used.
All you see are mounds of white,
It’s an absolute skier’s delight.
 
A flake here,
A flake there,
Snowflakes everywhere.
