The ice storm is over. For now...more wintry precipitation may be in the forcast for Tuesday and Wednesday. Winter in Texas: gotta love it!!
January fourteenth, fifteenth:
The city, frozen in place, glaz'd
white: nothing moves. Nothing, except
me, taking photographs with my
eyes, writing poems about the
ice, making memories: the trees
bow'd low by the weight of winter;
watching cars stall'd in a holding
pattern, going nowhere fast (ground
stopp'd); feeling color slapp'd to my
cheeks: when we're deep in July and
August heat, I will remember.
(c) 2007, Karla Dorman (1/15)

|Ice storms are beautiful, though they can wreak havoc on our daily routine. I love the way that the trees kneel in awe of Mother Nature's power and how humbled I feel as life moves on her schedule and not on our own. Beautiful poem, Karla.
