200 cms (78 inches or 6.5 ft) of snow
have fallen upon us since early December
along with the winds
those harsh blowing North Atlantic winds

that straighten my hair
with one blast
 no de-tangler
in my back pocket required

nor need I worry about the frizz-look
embarrassing me at the local mall.

There's no way
anyone could survive the ferocity
except maybe the occasional gull

even the cargo tankers have to wait out the strength
of Mother Nature's continual onslaught

but with all this being said
Nature's Beauty
just appears on the horizon
with the ocean spray
ignited by the sun's rays
flashing through the clouds.
