NaPoWriMo - Day Two: Greenout


in a pretty pink vest  

she leaves a cold white  

winterland behind -  

surrounds herself with  

spring flowers 



NAPOWRIMO (National Poetry Writing Month) Day 2. The challenge is to write a poem every day in the month of April. 
Today’s optional prompt: write a poem based on a word featured in a tweet from @HaggardHawks  an account devoted to obscure and interesting English words. 

I chose a word coined among Antarctic researchers and polar scientists, GREENOUT is the relief a person who has worked or lived in a snowy area for a long time feels on seeing something fresh and green for the first time.
