Groundhog day 2024 or Forty one days since 2023 Winter Solstice


Views: 99

Rather than be a day late
and dollar short, I opted
to post poem acknowledging
the second of February,
where eponymous groundhog
gets his (most often male)
foretelling whether there will be
six more weeks of winter upon oblate
spheroid generating hoopla
whether spring will arrive early and satiate
those folks who favor spring.

Already noticeably marked

increase in daylight

yours truly courtesy affected

qua heliotropic phenomenon

finds me noggin gently being tugged

upward and westward ho toward sun

after dark mine talking head

rests downward and eastward
and as a humble Earthling
bows sayonara to Gaia.


Soon very indistinct

environmental intimations

regarding onomatopoeic

ubiquitous murmurings,

whereby old man winter

ever so faintly

relinquishes, loosens, forsakes...

Judas Priest Iron Maiden grip

upon emergent biosphere

suddenly awakened when

Mother Earth generates


invisible signals transmitted

across world wide web

analogous to conductor

standing on podium

with baton in her/his hand

orchestra playing on cue

perhaps choice selection
Rite of Spring

work by Russian composer
Igor Fyodorovich Stravinsky

or Flight of the Bumblebee

written by Nikolai Rimsky-Korsakov.


Soon dormant species will exhibit rebirth

out their linkedin hibernation

flora and fauna tentatively

begin to issue forth out their slumbers

shoots poke thru across terra firma

insync with twittering tweeting creatures

hint viz verdant and/or fecund potential
ready to burst forth and proliferate

instinctively trumpeting joie de vivre.


Sensational show stopping, eye catching

breathtaking... parade of sights and sounds

await buzzfeeding eyes and ears

about six weeks hence,

within mine home box office

here at Highland Manor apartments

quite affordable rent

allows, enables and provides

radiant quiescence, preponderant observance,

nonresistant magnificence, jubilant innocence,

exuberant deliverance,

concurrent buoyant abundance.


Accordingly and allegedly other than
meteorologists plenti schooled
ascertaining onset of temperate air
more particularly otter den non humans
unassumingly (ferreted out), who bear
the tidings, when that season
of rebirth dawns with crystal clear
blue skies, and terrain where deer
and antelope eagerly play without despair
purportedly realized, reassured, recounted...drear
re: days vamoosed foretold by

Punxsutawney Phil, or
one of his progeny on Groundhog Day
February second - requires one
with acute hearing to , and ear
turnips tickling the nose nostrils
delicate hairs (instagram ideal outlook) subtly,
markedly, lively..., yet gently flair
soon harkening shrieks
of delightful analogous funfair
no stranger to Renaissance Faire

of pitch perfect gamesomeness
will seem as... otherworldly pleasant
ah heaven sent giftware,
where all creatures great and small
sing psalms, upon arrival when hardware
trappings of winter shucked witnessing
unrolled welcome Scottish mat so hare
and tortoise can race,
cuz vernal equinox, sports a linkedin
improvisational, ebulliently
educational, cerebral, audiological...

twittering melange I will hear,

and grateful no defect doth impair
ability to revel silence, slake, soak...
insatiable thirst even prodding junketeer,
panhandler, vendor...

the last named,

perhaps selling kitchenware

knicknacks, keepsakes...

to hippies, and/or aging
long hair pencil neck geeks

(think yours truly)

with long wavy hair
interwoven with Kahila
Garden Lily, Laurel, Maidenhair...
profusion of sensual delight
brings Mother Earth near,
the body, mind, and soul
espying frolicsome Homo sapiens
donned with minimal outerwear
infusing all living things

common native plants and animals

in conjunction with resident outlier
particularly those pining
to answer call of the wild overdare
ring and bee zee lee court'n prepare
ring to beget young as
singular requisite quintessential profiteer
fluttering, instagramming emoji,
sans shutterfly puppeteer
as audience visually already reddit

regarding acting entire scenes,
viz Biblical Genesis answering prayer
particularly if gnostic, heterodox, queer...,

finally relieved, sans polar vortex
albeit somewhat rare

atmospheric phenomena, how ideal
if said rabid Jack Frost
would sink icy bite - part
and parcel green gang
at much more favorably time reappear


during oppressive heat spell during
sweltering triple digits temperature
summer re: at various times
throughout the year
across the world arbitrarily
and randomly zeroing in on
The Democratic Republic of the Congo,
also known as Congo-Kinshasa,
DRC, DR Congo,
or simply the Congo
and known from 1971–1997 as Zaire.
