Winter In New England by Joan McNerny

Night drops like a hammer.
All day sludge grey snow,
slivers of ice.    Fear of falling
on paths covered with snow.

Night drops like a hammer
Driving through white outs
listening as the car motor
wheezes while climbing hills.

Night drops like a hammer.
Home now with only my
strength, my silence and
no trace of blue in the sky.

Joan McNerney’s poetry has been included in numerous literary magazines such as Camel Saloon, Seven Circle Press, Dinner with the Muse, Blueline, Spectrum, as well as several Bright Hills, Kind of A Hurricane and Poppy Road Review anthologies. She has been nominated three times for Best of the Net.  Four of her books have been published by fine small literary presses and she has four e-book titles.
