Snow & Ice in Janauary

Having lost my home

and belongings

betting in the stock market

Each day & night

I look for a warm place

During the days

there are stores

to shop in

sometimes getting a candy bar

and drink

During nights

I go to an old falling down

house– no one has lived in

for years

I keep my belongings there

and an old but warm

sleeping bag

I’m taking a day and night

at a time

As a teen, wanted to live from writing poetry. Wrote several books, selling nationally. Hung out with readers throughout the United States. My writing has been on back burner. Now dusting off my desk and have my pen in hand. Hope you enjoy some of what I write.
