    Poem Commentary

    This  has happened to many people. It is not always the best thing to do ,to walk. This could in danger others as well as yourself. Carry the right supplies  tools in your truck in case of emergencies. Wait for help if to far from home. We don't always have the convenience of a cell phone. Warm clothes, flashlights, chains snacks, blanket water.  Anything you can think of .Wait for daylight stay warm. Never leave the car running exhaust could over take you.You have a better chance to survive. With the convience of the cell phone. Take it 911 just might work.

    ENOUGH

    It started out like any other day
    The warm morning sun shining
    A misty appearance surfaced from the ground
    Giving  a smokie rolling cloudy meltdown
    The frosty ground all around us frozen
    The ground sparkled like diamond  dust
    A cold breeze soon became bitter with cold
    Warm mittens boots scarfs wrapped tightly around our necks
    We headed out for a drive
    The unexpected was soon to happen
    It was a long way from here to there
    Nothing in between lonely barren
    The snow began to fall
    Large flakes filled the air making it difficult to see
    The wipers heavy with snow barely moving
    All I could think of was the comforts of home
    Hot chocolate marshmallows melted in my cup
    A warm house fireplace and the comforts of home
    Out the window the snow began to smother the road
    The worried look on my face was hidden beneath my scarf
    The thought of being left way out here scared me
    Suddenly night fall was around us
    We could barely see where we were going
    Everything was white nothing in sight but snow
    Darkness surround us no plows light nothing
    When the car stopped running I thought we would surely die
    We began to walk with the hopes to find help
    It was all we could do hopelessly lost
    When over the hill in the dark peered a light
    The closer I got to realise
    It was home  home

    A poetic saga of gelid terrors. Even though I knew you would make it- you are writing from a historical perspective, after all, I read it to the last line, hungry for the satisfactions of the resolution experienced. Sweet.

    Just when you think that things couldn't get any colder, they do, but with hope there is a flicker that warms one's body and soul...we push on in spite of the chill...and we make it back home where it's comfy and sooooooo warm. Very nice, Betty

    When power leads man towards arrogance, poetry reminds him of his limitations. When power narrows the area of man's concern, poetry reminds him of the richness and diversity of existence. When power corrupts, poetry cleanses.
