Thinking Through a Blizzard

Written for:  Go Dog Go Cafe (posted by Devereaux and Beth)
"Use "blizzard of thoughts" in a piece of poetry."

He pictured her
in his mind,
this goddess
he met at his
job one day,
when too many 
hours of work
collided with
lack of sleep,
and his recent
divorce was still 
an open wound.
Is it too soon?
he wondered,
for me to venture
forth.  His mind
snowed a blizzard
of thoughts, 
blurring his vision 
of the goddess.

I am a freelance poet, born and bred in Brooklyn, New York. I live with my husband, John, and two charming rescue dogs–Marion Miller and Murphy. We spent eight lovely years in Portland, OR, but are now back in New York. My goal is to create and share poetry with others who write, or simply enjoy reading poetry. I hope to touch a nerve in you, and feel your sparks as well.
