January Blues – My Weekly Poem 1/31/2022

January blues stretch it long.
Playing on snow and ice,
wanting gone snow and ice,
a drawn out winter.

Enduring once more,
try to come out smiling;
tired, humorless, smiling,
knowing spring will come.

But it’s not that bad
in a warm, safe pad;
owning my choice
to feel the way I do.

This poem was posted for the previous week’s poetry prompt, Assonance. It ended up being more of an exercise than a poem I am proud of, but I decided to share it anyway.
