Snow Days

You just have to love snow days. Crystal flakes falling from the sky, covering the ground in all directions... It's a beautiful sight!



All this snow has inspired a cinquain poem. Writing a cinquain is quite easy, you simply pick a noun. That noun makes up your entire first line. The second line contains two adjectives describing your noun, third line three verbs, fourth line a sentence or feeling, and the fifth line a one word synonym relating back to the noun in line one. Short and sweet!

Here is the one I wrote about a snowflake...



Snowflake
Intricate, fragile
Dancing, sparkling, vanishing
* Weaver of winter’s blanket
Flurry


* Weaver in the poem refers to Christ (Job 38:22 and Psalms 147:16-17)



Now its your turn! Leave me a comment with your own original cinquain.

Polar Plunge Poetry

This is the third year I have braved the Polar Plunge. Despite unbearably cold conditions hundreds plunge year after year for a great cause- Special Olympics!! I have written a poem to hopefully explain the reason behind the heart of a Plunger such as myself. 




Something Special:




Cold
Icy
Frigid
Frozen
A Plunger’s body numbs,
Yet their warm heart beats an anthem.

Respect
Appreciation
Credit
Admiration
A Plunger’s esteem of athlete’s
Yields bravery to face absence of heat.

Determination
Courage
Strength
Tenacity
A Special Olympian’s mindset,
Enduring through toil and sweat

Perseverance
Soul
Passion
Resilience
A Special Olympian’s heartbeat,
Soaring to bold new feats.


“Let me win. But if I cannot win, let me be brave in the attempt.” –Special Olympian oath
