Gates of Wrath

Treachery, thy name is Ice –

dangerous to foe and friends,

booby-trap, to be concise,

magnetized to bottom ends;

enemy to hip and knee,

baited ambush to my path,

pitfall to the fancy free,

enter in the Gates of Wrath.

    A slick picture & a slick poem!

    I used to deliver mail and those days of walking around on ice were treacherous! 🙂 Be careful!

      That spot on the sidewalk I am avoiding – we continue to get nasty freezing rain, and it will be slick for a while – and forecast calls for snow on top of it – yikes!!

    Another wow-wonderful poem, Melody–and I’m seriously praying for your safety on the black ice, clear ice, ice covered by snow ice! I hate, despise, detest, deplore and despair when we have ice–I have to walk up/down a little incline to the bank and grocery, so although I stay prayed up all year, I pray through clenched teeth in the winter ice! God bless you big–love, Caddo
