Snowballs in the Snow

Love:

let me be
your candy
sweet fantasy

of reindeer snow
of red-nosed glow
from snowball throw

aimed happy crazy
on mouth soft and saucy
and your eyes that melt me

gleam a Southern summertime
of delicious crime
as time spins on a dime.


A recipe for Peanut Butter Snowballs (pictured above) is here. Of course the earliest reference to peanut butter can be traced back to the Aztecs who would not have been acquainted with snow. Written for dVerse’s Quadrille (44 words, “candy”).

    Ode to a sweet friend? I like your shape poem,
    I haven’t written one of those for a long, long time.
    Oh yes, it was a mild dose of COVID, but it did leave a trail.
    Merry Christmas!!
