Horror of the Snow Day

Yahoo Image Search

Plans were made
Factoring in a storm
Some flexibility built in
Yet praying
That the snow is light
*
Starting slow and cool
You feel a little skip
The worst is an illusion
Broken by the phone
To say the schools are closed
*
Storm still mild
While indoors is a maelstrom
Working and cleaning
While kid is running
You try to make some progress
*
Worn down to a nub
Yet thankful for foresight
One day of loss
Can be undone
Until the phone rings
Once

About Charles Yallowitz

Charles E. Yallowitz was born, raised, and educated in New York. Then he spent a few years in Florida, realized his fear of alligators, and moved back to the Empire State. When he isn't working hard on his epic fantasy stories, Charles can be found cooking or going on whatever adventure his son has planned for the day. 'Legends of Windemere' is his first series, but it certainly won't be his last.
