Blizzard Blizzard Come Lets Play Poem by Ayman Parray

Blizzard Blizzard Come Lets Play

Rating: 5.0

First there was the big bang in the sky,
Billions of years later a glow up high
The children thought it was a cloud,
It was a blizzard, the sky burst out loud
Then it just snowed and snowed and snowed,
Till New York needed to be shoveled and shoveled and shoveled
A twenty degree temperature drop in the North Pole,
Led me to believe the world would end whole
But look how optimistic the children, they lead the way,
In snow covered Fort Tryon Park, they play

For all the brave and resilient children of the United States and their parents. And for my family and friends in the US. Picture taken by Talal Nadir Ansari. Talal it was your picture that truly inspired me to write these few humble words, I thank you.

A beautiful descriptive write. The title speaks volumes. How unaffected are children by the snow storm. They wanna play no matter what. This poem touches upon climatic changes and the effect of that on the children. A delightful read.

I remember loving big snowstorms when I was a child. I would stay out all day building forts and snowmen and having snowball fights. (I even enjoyed shoveling) But as an older man, winter gets old quickly and snow becomes less and less fun. (I did build a snowman two months ago after our first snowfall) : -)

The beautiful picture of Talat Ansari, giving us a message, why in the fears of a death and destruction we should spoil our beautiful life? And your poem reproducing the beauty of the picture in beautiful words inspires us to look for a moment of peace and joy in a dream land like this.
