Ice capade

Slide in an ice sculpture display in Florida

I hope the frigid cold has subsided in the northern U.S. and Canada. I was thinking about those impacted by the extreme weather.

It makes one wonder when the cold becomes a serious detriment, and when people embrace it for enjoyment. We never want conditions that threaten life or present hazards though.

Polar vortex from the north,

Moves throughout the land;

Sweeping away the warmth,

Creating fears within.

The rain, the ice stop our tracks.

What else can we do?

In the north where the cold winds blow,

The people huddle, around the warm glow.

But what about those who brave the cold,

Slipping and sliding on the ice?

When is it a burden for us all,

Compared to the fun of sliding, skating and other things nice?

Let’s have some of it begs the south,

But don’t stay too long.

We look for the snow and the wintry path.

We’ll bundle and risk the fall,

Riding, walking, sliding on the colorful ice. 

Blessings along the Way!
