OctPoWrMo #25: White

I've been given advice.
Haven't always followed
what well-wishing loved ones say.
Maybe that's why mice
have swallowed
all the food in my fridge today.

Meme found on the internet
which matches my mood precisely.
The year before we moved to Spokane, Washington, it snowed so much that roofs collapsed at some of the big name shopping centers around the city. Our apartment building was safe, but when winter comes, I now tend to watch how much snow is falling

  2. Thank you! Almost didn't post anything at all and tomorrow is an all day writing workshop. As my mother would say, "Ooofta!"
