Covered in creamy
the parked cars
their streetlamp candles,
waiting for the North Wind
to come make its wish

Thinking about it as "creamy birthday-cake frosting" makes it much nicer when I am brushing a ton of it off of my car! Thank you for the lovely words during my not-so-favorite season.
A delicate and evocative poem, Charles. Thanks for posting it.
Gorgeous photo! I'm not so anxious for the North Wind to get here, but it won't be so bad when I think of it making wishes with the streetlamp candles...
I adore this extended metaphor. Thank you!
Thank you all! Enjoy the winter wonderland. It's snow wonder this time of year inspires so many poems!
I love your ending. I love the idea of the North Wind making wishes over the lamps it blows on.
I love this! Charles, may I use it on my cake website (with full credits to you as author, of course)?
Thank you, Carlie, for your kind comment. I appreciate it!Hi Peggy! WOW! I just visited your delicious website! What a creative artist you are! Yes, you are welcome to use my cake poem.
Oh, I just want to go outside and lick the trees! Thank you for this, Charles! A.
I liked this! What a fun way to look at snow - especially as I'm off to NY for the SCBWI Winter conference! Thanks for sharing, and thanks as well for being part of the Comment Challenge!Namaste,Lee
