Stupid March

Sponsered by LouCeeL

Gray clouds block the sun
Snow continues to cover
Dumb, cold, gloomy March

Tease us with promise
of lovely, warm springtimes past
still fresh in my mind

But this is just mean
Twenty degrees below norm
Not what I hoped for

It's snowing again
No hope of sunshine or grass
How much can I take?

I have nightmares of
Gads of dog poo piles thawing
from beneath the snow

Blanketing the yard
When spring finally does come
Horror awaits me

Stupid, stupid March
You may be on your way now.
I like you no more.

Love the Haikus. Good job!

Can we blame March for the stupid time change too? So ready for warmer weather, not hot, just seasonal.

I know! Awful right!?! We don't even have a bit of snow, but wow do we have mud. Mud, mud, everywhere! I should right a poem about mud. ;) Ugly cold weather. I want some warm spring showers at least...

It's still winter. I accept that.
And drink a lot.

It's really annoying that my daughter had her spring break this week. We might have seen two hours of sun all week!

Kat said...

Green Girl- Yes. Drinking. That would be a fabulous idea if I hadn't given up alcohol (and sweets and eating at night) for Lent. BAH!

Frustration personified! We have Autumn chills spiked with summer left overs! So many people are getting early colds!

Dawn said...

You're good at these haikus. I'm done with March too. Not because of snow, but because of non-stop rain and allergies.

Well, done! We were just in NJ/NYC for Spring Break and my kids were constantly complaining about the cold (their TX blood kicking in). When we flew home yesterday, the first words out of my oldest son were, "Whew, glad that TX feels like spring"!

Yet still the wise one sees
Beneath the snow, the crud, the junk -
Life.

I love the mental image of "gads of dog poo piles thawing". Wonderful.

Now, if we could only persuade Spring that it's time has come ...

This made me giggle. :) Cheer up- spring will come!

Words To Live By

Be grateful for each new day.
A new day that you have never lived before.
Twenty-four new, fresh, unexplored hours to use usefully and profitably.
We can squander, neglect, or use them.
Life will be richer or poorer by the way we use today.
Finish every day and be done with it.
You have done what you could;
some blunders and absurdities crept in;
forget them as soon as you can.
Tomorrow is a new day.
You shall begin it well and serenely and with too high a spirit to be
encumbered with your old nonsense.

-Ralph Waldo Emerson
