As a blizzard bears down on us from the Dakotas (6-12 inches of snow expected, with much blowing and drifting), a new poem of mine on that very topic has been included in Flurry: wintry poetry, intermittently, from Minnesota and the Dakotas , an online journal edited by Todd Boss. March 7 is the posting date. Be sure to browse the excellent poetry by lots of Upper Midwest poets, some of whom are friends and acquaintances.
While we're on the topic, here's another wintry poem of mine. I've linked it to the Northography website, but it also was part of a collection that I entered in the 2007 Creekwalker Poetry Prize competition.

Thanks for the links. I particularly enjoyed your piece and wonder if non-northerners understand the emotional nuances of snow. I've posted several snow poems on my blog if you haven't had enough of it for this season at least.
