Winter Weather Advisory This work has been published in the Teen Ink monthly print magazine.

By
   It's coming!

Oh, no! It's Coming!

It's, it's SNOW.



The news last night

foretold this polar event.

The TV screen

all night reading,

"A winter weather advisory is in effect."



Nine and a half inches of lacy white

frozen water

sprawled out over the ground.



I dress up in

layers of woolen armor

ready to face

the sworn enemy.

Using a black, curved sword

to dig in and throw

the enemy across

my driveway.



Snowflakes

are tough little suckers

when they gang up on you.

Finally,

the battle is won

and I am once again

champion of the

Winter Weather Advisory.
