NaPoWriMo, Day 14



They said rain was coming today,

freezing on the way down

into pellets.  We prepared

for heaven’s ammunition,

bundled up at home.  We moaned

about spring in Michigan

and global warming.

We cleaned things

since it’s spring, after all,

and that’s what you do in spring

in Michigan when you’re home

waiting for an ice storm

that never came.  We felt cold

burn our skin when we

investigated, but the pavement

was dry.  Tentative steps

to the mailbox, the way

you can’t just shake off

the memory of being a target.

    1. NaPoWriMo stands for National Poetry Writing Month, in which participants commit to writing a poem every day for the entire month of April. It goes along with NaNoWriMo, National Novel Writing Month, which happens in November. It’s nothing official…you don’t get anything but bragging rights if you complete it…just a fun challenge!
