#SOL18: Remnants

In the trails

In the hollows

In the ditches

In the shady spots

Out of the sun

In those darkened spots

Traces remain

A glimpse of what was 

Just two short weeks ago.

Flat spaces of brown

Dry and sparsely vegetated

Scattered collections of gray and white

Remnants of the great snowstorm of two weeks ago.

Snow in the news.

20 ” shattering records

Causing accidents

Collapsing roofs and

Exploding transformers.

A blanket of snow

A fresh new covering

Quickly fades as the danger emerges

For people, animals, and vehicles on the road.




Observation and Reading the World – First four stanzas

Final two stanzas – Found poem from CBS Nightly News @ 5:30 pm on December 10, 2018.

  1. So much snow already. Stay safe and warm.

    1. Margaret,
      I think it’s going to be that kind of winter. “Snow dumps” instead of “snowfall” or “small accumulations”!

  2. I had to smile as I read this because we still have some (although small) piles of snow left over from our pre-Thanksgiving storm. Watching the nightly news I can’t believe the weather some states are getting. Stay safe and warm.

    1. Above 40 today so they are melting . . . very unusual to last over two weeks this early – technically not Winter for at least another week. ❤
