SoCS–Arizona Snow-Lanterne

Our Stream of Consciousness Saturday prompt is “present.”  I was in the mood to try some Lanterne poetry, which is shaped in the form of a Japanese lantern or Christmas tree.  I did not follow the syllable rule, instead I used the number of words: 5 lines; 1, 2, 3, 4, 1.

Here is a photo of our Arizona backyard a few years ago (now you know why we moved back to Florida:

Thanks for visiting me in Pensacola, Florida where it is going to be 77 degrees this afternoon.  I will see you all again!

  1. I had never heard of Lanterne poetry but indeed the combination of shape and words works out well. The picture looks beautiful and very seasonal although I completely understand you thoughts on moving to a much warmer area (we don’t get snow here very often but it makes life complicated, pretty as it might be). Happy Sunday!

          1. Yes, 60’s isn’t bad. I would take it over Chicago winters any day but in all honesty, things have not been too cold here so far this year.

  2. Wow! This may sound odd, but I had no idea it snows like that in Arizona! I do see why you moved…I sometimes think about doing that too. Not a fan of snow and ice. Plus I sometimes fantasize about the extra space I’d have if I didn’t have to store winter blankets, flannel sheets, warm clothing and pajamas, jackets…you get the idea! 🙂

      1. Yes,there is snow in Northern Arizona. My sister lived at Prescott. I like the area very much. We spent some time as hosts at The Call of the Canyon. In Yuma people sta d outside and watch when it rains which is seldom. We lived there.
