SAMPLE: Winter Moon

Hey everyone, Flobo here! Welcome to my weekly updated Blog O’ Fun!

Did you know that I used to write poetry? True story. I have since left that form of writing behind, I’ve amassed a small collection of my own over my first two books, “By The Ounce And Other Tales” and “Mass Transit.” Today, I want to share with you a poem that seems fitting for this time of the year (In the Northern Hemisphere anyway). Called “Winter Moon”, it originally appeared in the “Mass Transit” collected. With the poem, I wanted to capture the feeling of being in the dead of winter in a big city. Well read on, and if you like it, don’t forget to:

And without further ado….

Winter Moon

The howling wind transcends the city grind

And flurries of snow begin to stick to the streets

During these months, the moon rules the land

The city never sleeps however.

Neon signs are now pedestrian lighthouses

Guiding the shivering men and women home

Who braved the elements during the night

There was a time not too long ago

When crowding around the city shops for warmth was a tradition

An urban country club

But to return to a home fitted with modern conveniences

The need isn’t there anymore

Other people aren’t needed anymore

For those that do not have a home

The secretly count the months and days

For the return of the springtime sun.
