colder than cold

thursday morning
well past dawning
 temperature
falling
 was 
below
 zero

 cold caused
 subway and rail 
delays

 people
 bundled
  top to toe 

 all manner of clothing
 keeping
them from freezing

 hoods over hats
 hats pulled low
over brows 
gloves
under
 mittens

scarves
 wrapped around necks 
over noses
 boots covered toeses

 no one walked 
slowly

 bundled
 to
 the max

as 
i climbed the subway stairs
 out of the cold 
into 
the colder 
i looked up 

look at that 

wow
 what a sight
 bright as bright
 could be
 the moon
 was
 peeking
 down 
on 
me

  5. A beautiful view, though I can't imagine being awake that early!

    We had the deep cold here as well. It's moderated somewhat today.

  6. Its the Wolf Moon this month. Ironic that in the big city people have more exposure to weather than those of us in the 'burbs.
