Streaming Thoughts on “Ice”

Toddler’s rosy ice-cold cheeks.
Zooming, bumping down icy hills
on cafeteria-trays as sleds.
Crack-the-whip flying on ice skates.
Chocolate ganache, icing supreme,
marguerita on the rocks, please.
Icicle turrets on snow castles,
I scream for ice cream.
Smiling me,
at a list like this.

Written for Quadrille Monday at dVerse, the virtual pub for poets around the globe. Today Mish asks us to include the word “ice” or a form of the word, in our poem of exactly 44 words, sans title. Image by annca from Pixabay

    A lovely stream of consciousness list of iciness, Lill! I love the rush of excitement in the sledding and skating. I smiled at ‘I scream for ice cream’ and now I have that song in my head.

    Your streaming thoughts reminded me of “these are a few of my favourite things”. Wonderful.
    Cafeteria trays as sleds?? I thought I’d traveled down snowy hills on every imaginable object….haha! Love it.
