winter wasteland…by Toni L.A. Cross

barren wasteland
of frozen water
stretching on
til the mountains begin
I lumber forward
like an ancient polar bear
trudging through the
groaning powder
cast off by the wintry heavens
even the sun
seems austere and cold
and reflects like white fire
in my bleary eyes
as the wind cuts and slaps
like a relentless scourge

My name is Toni Cross, and I was raised on a farm in the far north of the United States. I love to read and write and I hope to use those hobbies in a greater way in the days to come. One of my passions is using whatever influence I have to make a difference in the world.

  4. Thank you! This is a picture of where I live. Hehe- warm and cheery looking, huh? This was taken in the USA, but those mountains are in Canada, I believe.
