Throwback Friday, Cascading Snowflakes, by Ivor Steven

Here I am presenting a poem I wrote in September 2018..

Cascading Snowflakes

A morning blizzard of hailstones

Smothers my old frozen bones

Polarised, I’m shivering head to spine

Chilling my chasms of hard lines

Daily coldness unwrapping

Mid-morning thawing, eventually happening

Melting my eternal icy lakes

Into an avalanche of cascading snow-flakes

Covering me in a white blanket of crystal firestones

Gradually warming my lonesome bones

Turning my purple blood a claret red

Clearing heavy fogginess from my head.

Ivor Steven (c) September 2018

G’day, and welcome to my blog site. My name is Ivor Steven, I live in Geelong, Australia. I’m an ex-industrial chemist, and a retired plumber, and a former Carer of my wife(Carole), for 30 years, who suffered from severe MS. I Write poetry about those personal thoughts, throughout and beyond my life as a Carer. I’ve been blogging for over 2 years, and writing poems for 19 years. Of course a lot of my poems are about my favourite subject Carole, but since I’ve been blogging my writings have become quite varied, humourous, mystical, observational, and even a few monster/horror poems. View all posts by ivor20

    • Thank you Ingrid… It was one of those deep introverted poems… it was written in September, my wedding anniversary month, so probably a lot to do with me thawing out (recovering) from missing Carole… so if you read it like that… what my poem is about might be clearer (maybe) 🤔😊…
