“The Sun Has Gone South” (A Triolet)

The sun has gone south for another day
and left behind a land of snow and ice.
Decimated trees on dark houses lay.
The sun has gone south for another day.

No sparkling diamonds under skies of gray.
More snow tomorrow? A roll of the dice.
The sun has gone south for another day
and left behind a land of snow and ice.

  1. Ah.. wonderful… you create triolets wonderfully… the thought of how the winter linger is sad yet.. maybe if wait the spring will come

    nice triolet…the sun is heading south here…we are supposed to get 6-12 inches tomorrow….
    it seems this winter will go on and on…ready for a bit of warm sun…

    Oh yes, indeed, the sun does seem to have gone south for much of the winter. We have had 22 days in a row below freezing. Your triolet expresses something I can identify with as well. Strongly!

  6. Ahh..the middle of February..and although now..
    the groundhog saw his shadow..

    is fresh now in my mindnow…

  8. I tried writing troilets but everyone said they were crappy and stinky.

      Ha! Be happy you’re in sunny FL, Carl, and not in the Middle Atlantic states–expecting more snow tonight on top that which we’ve already had. It’s enough to make a snowbird out of me!

  9. Nice triolet. You have captured the bleakness well. I truly sympathize with those enduring the long winters up north. I feel blessed to be living in the South Florida sunshine. Come on down. I’ll leave the porch light on.
