Mid January

What do you do when you are feeling blue?
When the weather outside, is gloomy too?
Do you read?
Do you write?
Do you take time for you?

When the sun won't shine,
And the wind blows hard.
Leaves lie everywhere in your yard.
Plants are dead, frozen and cold.
Do you feel like this, is getting old?

Do you fill up a cup with something hot?
Grab a blanket,
Wonder not?
Dream of life, warmth and dirt?
The smell of rich, fresh, tilled earth.

Enjoy your rest.
As winter rolls along.
Make plans for your future,
Be happy,
Carry on.

I AM enjoying your poems. Not corny at all. As a person who could never write poetry I think these are very good, rhyme nicely and have nice sentiments behind them.

Lovely -- and it ties in nicely with my own post today. :-) This time of year, one does whatever they can to brighten the days, I think.

What a great poem Cindee - did you write it yourself?
Glad to hear you weren't affected by the earthquake. My sister in law had her hot water tank on the 2nd floor come throught the ceiling - goodness what a mess!
I think we're coming down in February.

Wonderful Cindee. I am enjoying your poetry.
I had to put you on my google reader somehow I have missed putting you into it. Blotanical does not always work very fast at loading.

That picture sure sums up your poem well.
Hey so I do not forget....
May your day be filled with love, family, friends and flowers. Gifts are always nice too. ;-D

New look to your blog!

Answer to your poem; when in doubt - blog!

If I'm happy, I write because I'm happy. If I'm worried or sad - I immerse myself in my blogs, then I forget. Good medicine!

I see from Hocking Hills Gardener's comment that it's your birthday. Happy birthday from me too!

Oh . . . and going for a long walk with just me and my camera - that usually perks me up.

Best wishes.

Hi Japanese Redneck,

Great poem. Rained hard last nite,creek was roaring, yeehaa. Hope it snowed in the high mtns, we soooo need the water. My honker decoy in the creek has gone down stream, will go in search of when it warms up a bit.

Hi Brighid,
It was windy and rainy here last night too! Wowzer!
Thought we would have some damage but everything looks good outside!
We need a lot of rain. Hope it keeps coming!

Hi Cindee! I'm really enjoying all of your poems. We've had such frigid weather in New England... everything is just covered in snow. I take respite by sitting next our fireplace... can't wait for spring! :)

I love this poem. I think you should change the name of your blog to the Poetry Gardener or something like that!
