Dearest Cold White,
You, now leaning against the wall
in the shadows, have been my
constant companion these months.
We’ve become intimately acquainted.
Persistence is a quality of yours
that has held my attention from your
first fall. Your presence has frozen
tiny feet and hidden morsels beneath
your solid crystalled blanket.
Alas, your nemesis, resting high and
beaming low, means it’s time for you
to go. Metamorph to warm spring rain
and my dear, I’ll love you once again.
Forever yours (maybe,)
One northern hairless critter.

For today’s Poetics, I would like you to write a Verse Epistle. Go philosophical, go solemn, go dark or perhaps political, pose a romantic question – as long as your poem emulates the style of the poetic genre– anything goes. Keep in mind that your contribution need not be half as lengthy or flowery as the examples shared above, I aim for this prompt to be wide in scope and enjoyable for all.
