It was 24 degrees above at 5:30 AM in Punta Gorda Fl.. Burr, its cold out side!!!!!

When I awoke this morning,
much to my surprise,
a different scene greeted my eyes

No lush hues of green were
to be seen, instead a bright
whiteness covered the green

I ran out side, walked all
around. I heard crunch, chrunch
as my feet hit the ground

I shivered when hit by a blast
of frigid air, as I looked
around, filled with dispair

My pink roses were no longer
there, pure whitness could be
seen every where

Frost glistened in my garden
once green. Brown palms swayed
in the wintery scene

I turned quickly, went into
the house, glad of the warmth
that greeted me there,as the
smell of coffee filled the air


I'll be glad when Jack Frost
has finally gone, because,
SW Florida is one place,
he doesn't belong

Old Jack Frost seems to be wearing out his welcome all over the nation, these days. May the Maid of Spring soon chase the old rascal away!

MaryGrace,
The surprise you evoke lies at the heart of this poem, the unexpected, the unusual gives it energy and makes it worthwhile.

Not so cold here; in the middle 30's here in Texas. Brr! You were colder than Texas?? That's nuts!! Hope it warms up soon, for your sake! Great write, MaryGrace; brava!

(((HUGS))) and much love, your friend in Tx., Karen Lynn. :D

I wouldn't mind some of that cold stuff; send it our way, please??

This is a wonderful descriptive "cold-weather" poem. You did a terrific job of making me feel the frost beneath my feet and the cold air. I'm in the northern part of Florida and in the six years I've lived here, we've never had such a long cold spell as we're having now. I'm ready for spring!

MaryGrace,

Wonderful write taking you to a frozen Florida? That's a bit of an oxymoron. What a shock that must have been! Living in the the desert southwest,I think I would have fainted!

Had to laugh at this MG. Wasn't a bad morning up here in the mountains of New Hampshire today; almost warm actually at just 10 below zero. I envy you. lol

Oh, my, Mary Grace, that IS nippy for Florida! Y'all were colder than us, we were around 33. Warmed up to 49 ... stay warm, 'hear? (Never thought I'd say that to a Floridian! Maybe an Alaskan, yes. LOL)

(((HUGS))) and love, Karla.
