Skis fly

Target seen

Jump into prone

Steady to fire  
Skis fly

Target has a hole

Jump up

And off I go
Skis fly

Shot again

Get back up

Dash off
Skis fly

I’m a blur

Faster faster
My tired eyes cross the line

Ice Fishing


Ice Fishing

By Ayden Clark



With a jacket like a heater

And a helmet on my head

I turn

through the

Woods

crunch crunch crunch

As the wheels break sticks

and I cautiously drive out

onto the lake

Swish Sposh

says slush on the water

Then I park

put my green and black

rod in the holder

And wait

And wait

And wait

Until the drag starts to

Ring Ring Ring

Like a bell

from the fish

pulling

The line

I reel

And reel

And reel

And the dark brown with gold

fish

Flops out of the hole

lands

on

the ice

Splash splash

Flop Flop

Success!

Dinner…

Black Ice


Black ice

By Regis Houlier





Black ice, the villain of

Winter  

Always incognito

Hiding, Waiting for me. Wanting me

To slip into its trap

Creeping up right under me  

And right when I get near it

When I least expect it

It springs to attack

Shooting me

Across its villainess body

SCARING ME

And slamming  

Me to the ground like

A nail

 Laughing at me

With its cold heart

As I limp away

In pain

Winter and Summer


Winter & Summer

By Lauren Angus
Love catching snowflakes on my glove

Summer’s popsicle  

Both melting as soon as you get them
Love building a snowman

Summer’s sand castle

They don't last long
Love having snowball fights

Summer’s water balloons

You get wet either way  
Love finding icicles

Summer’s flowers

They come every year
Love having snow days

Summer’s vacation

Always outside  
Summer

Winter

They are almost the same

Just different

Secret


Secret

By Holden
The silent whispers

Of a secret

No one knows

what it is

But the desire

is there

To know it

Like an unquenchable thirst
The secret spreads

Twisting its way through small openings

Like the smell of muffins

Or dust floating on air
You might know a little more

If you know the secret

A little more knowledge

Or a little more wisdom
The secret can hurt

Like a spider’s bite

Piercing the skin

And the heart
The secret could be a key

To unlock more secrets

And sometimes

Wonders
The secret has wings

Like a butterfly

Soaring

The silent whispers of a secret.

Santa is Near


Santa is Near

By Holden Friesel




It’s hard to rhyme

But let me be frank

This time of year

Is tough on the bank



Christmas is a season

Of economy

Large stores anticipate it

With glee




Piles on piles

Of presents bring cheer

You better get ready

Santa is near




The milk and cookies

Make sure he is fed

Before we know it

every kid is in bed




They are dreaming of

Candy and toys

And all of the shopping

Will delight girls and boys.

Winter, My Enemy


Winter, My Enemy

By Jacob Law

Pellets of sleet

stab me

like a thousand pins and needles

The cold winter air

STRANGLES me

as I walk out the door

Cold snow

bites at my feet and my nose

And ice trips me

when I dart through the field

With my friends

Icicles threaten to impale me

As they hang from the gutters

Winter should be arrested and cuffed

Winter is guilty

LISTEN

Ice Crystals


Ice

    By Liv


Frozen crystals dance

Twirling, gliding through the frosty air

Descending softly

Slowly towards earth

Gently meeting the water

Of a frigid river

Dissolving  promptly

To become a part of

The flowing mountain stream
