She was not ready
to awaken from slumber
so she rolled over
pulling up her white covers
snuggling in a while longer

Though I wrote this Tanka  poem as a metaphor for winter, it aptly described my own lack of motivation yesterday morning as a snow day allowed me a bit more cuddle time.

  1. I love the personification of winter here and love how it serves two purposes: to describe Winter and to describe just how you were feeling. A beautiful poem, Paula. Let’s all help roll her out of bed, hand her a packed suitcase, and wave goodbye. She has overstayed her visit!
