So It Snowed (A Poem)

Woke up to snow

And what do you know?

The pavements were white

And the morning so bright.

With a chill in the air

And hat over my hair

I trudged down the street

Taking ‘oh so much’ care.

It is nice to see snow

With its effervescent glow.

It is right for the season

And there for a reason.

Yet some have soon claimed

Though they need not be named

That is means climate change isn’t real.

Well, you know how I feel.

The presence of snow

Is quite seasonal, you know.

With effects of El Nino

Every four years we cool…so?

The Earth is still warming

But we may find more storming.

Extremes are expected

If the climate is neglected.

Climate change is real

But we need to do a deal…

In Dubai we need more action

So the fight can gain more traction.

Thank you for reading my snow poem. For another of my poems, take a look at Terrible Turmoil. Please also consider following my blog for future similar content.

Reconnecting With Wildlife

This month the Climate Change Collective are writing about how to make fresh connections with nature or simply reawaken an appreciation of the world around us. The topic is discussed in the newest lead post by A Sustainably Simple Life.

Check out the brilliant article here:

The post talks about a personal experience of attending a retreat. I can totally relate to the idea that withdrawing from the hustle and bustle of daily life and spending time in the countryside is always beneficial.

Take Aways

Reading about being immersed with nature, this article reminded me how important it is to spend time with animals and plants. It is so easy to disconnect from the natural world and so making time to appreciate it is vital.

People who don’t recognise the importance of climate change are often busy working and caught up in urban life. Taking time away from all of that can draw attention to the fragility and value of wildlife and give us all moments to think about what is actually important.

As weather systems change and garden birds are becoming less visible, there is real value in ensuring you give yourself self care and allow yourself to rebuild a relationship with nature.

Thank you for popping by. Please check out the Climate Change Collective article linked above and drop a comment about how you plan to reconnect with nature.
