Dream House - Not
I somehow missed this post. I enjoyed your rhymed couplets as you described the ordeal of house hunting. I hope you have had success in finding a suitable property. Best wishes- Joan

    Hi Joan. Thank you for going back and reading this one. I believe that was in 2013 when Bob and I first relocated from California and were house hunting. I did find a wonderful house which I am in right now. Marilyn

Today It Snowed/Red Earmuffs
the pictures of the snow clad trees always look great, but your realistic poem takes away all the romance of a white winter's day. I think I'd need a woolly scarf to go with the ear muffs. Nice pair of poems Marilyn,
cheers,
valda

    Hi Valda. Today we still have snow, but it's sunny and milder. I'm hoping with the arrival of February that the winter is about over. Thank you for your review of my earmuff poem. I DO love my earmuffs. Marilyn

Skies Faded to Black
Some thunderstorms have straight winds strong enough to do such damage, even without a tornado. Considering the tree damage in your own yard, you did well compared to some of your neighbors. You covered the key elements of this rainstorm vividly in this nicely rhymed poem. Well done, and aptly illustrated. I'm glad you were unharmed.

(Did you take this picture from an upstairs window?)

    Hi Mike. Thank you for your nice review. We were under tornado watch here. It was a violent storm. The image was from the internet. I didn't dare go near the windows, I thought something would crash through any second. Marilyn

    I'm so glad it wasn't worse. On March 3, 1991, we had an ice storm which broke the top of every one of the many trees in our yard, scattering lots of branches all over the street in front. our power was out for nine days, and our finished basement flooded because the sump pump had no power. We were lucky that the year before we had taken down a five-trunked male poplar on one side and a huge female poplar on the other side -- both about sixty feet tall. A big branch of the male tree had been over our master-bedroom roof. We still had a mess, but not as bad as it might have been. Here are some pictures that were in the paper (none showing our street, though).

    Most of the fallen branches all over town were carted to an empty field I could see from the nearby expressway. It took several years for the piles to be gone, even though the city was giving away whatever anyone wanted to chip for mulch.

    You were right to avoid windows. -- Mike

Rain and their storms can bring out the mysterious dark side in us all. I was thinking about Hurricane Erick, but sorry to read it's a storm that you just endured.

Well thought out. Clearly written. Great verbiage. Excellent visual imagery created. Good alliterations sprinkled around. Good rhyming. Beautiful poem.

Hi Marilyn,

You've conveyed the power of nature so well in this piece, as well as how it affects every living thing.

Excellent rhyming, great imagery created for your reader, and something that we all can relate to. I especially love "angry slate skies" ... great description!

Great job on this!

Hugs,
Connie
