Dreaming of Summer: for One Single Impression




In my frozen land of ice and snow
Only in dreams can seasons blend
During cold winter nights

The temperature reading this morning at the time of posting:
-19ยบ Celsius brrrrrr...

These lines were created in response to the words, "a summer day", which is this week's prompt at One Single Impression. For more poetry on this theme please visit the hosting site.

That is really neat! I have to say winter photos like the last one are really beautiful, even though winter is a hard time in the north.

Lovely use of the winter photos for summer dreamin'. Stay warm. It's been a hard winter here, as well, and I'm sure there's more to come.

What a difference! I can't even imagine how cold -19 is. It was in the 80's here today.
