The Gods Need To Get Their Act Together or Maybe Just Leave Us Out of It Because I Prefer It When Our Weather Acts Correctly – And Other Weather Poems

If you’ve ever lived in Montana or visited during spring (or any other season), you’d know that there’s nothing more unpredictable than our weather. The sudden radical changes–though irritating–can also be quite thought provoking as well.

The Gods Need To Get Their Act Together or Maybe Just Leave Us Out of It Because I Prefer It When Our Weather Acts Correctly

Hades and Persephone have 
Ended their marital spat
Cause one day it was acting like spring
And then it was winter like that
But it must've been pretty bad
Cause this Christmas was the one of the greenest
I think we've ever had
I hope they don't get along too well
Cause that itself is an issue
You see, come May, I'd like to see tulips
And robins and green grass too

Winter Has Come

The snow, the snow is here
Too early, too cold, too fierce
The first snowfall should be
A gentle, magical,wished-for thing
Not this terror.

The wind is shrieking, howling
The trees bowing beneath its rage
It’s blinding white outside
And the air is bitter, biting cold
Freezing your breath in your throat
Chilling you to the bone

The snow has come too early
If it is so fierce now,
What will it be like in the middle of winter?

From Glimpses of a Weekend Road Trip: 11:12 am – The Great Divide

We've been driving- maybe fifteen minutes
And the world has changed seasons
At the beginning of the pass- fall colors
Rust red bushes, golden tamaracks, dark green pines
A gentle rain falling, dogs and clouds all around
Now we're at the middle of the pass and the scenery- white
It's the middle of winter now
Snow piles on trees, the sky invisibly gray
The windows fogged up, the cold creeping through
Lookout Pass? As if
We can't see anymore through the storm
There's snow plows and weather warnings
Yes, welcome to Idaho- it's winter here

From Glimpses of a Weekend Road Trip: 11:23 am – Strange

We're back in fall again
How strange that bit of winter was
I think a frost giant was living there
What other explanation is there?
I don't believe in elevation and regular weather patterns
