    A fine snowball-shaped poem Brian.

      THANKS STEVE ~ My study of the Natural Sciences gives me an interest on FORM & FUNCTION and as a kid (in the 1980's) it always fascinated me that as you rolled a snowball it was a perfect circle. An English Snowman always has two SPHERICAL BALLS ! Pleased you enjoyed it ~ BRIAN "The Lyrical Snowman"

        Swoon! Couldn't help it. Erm, a snowman would have two spherical things! oohh. His head and his body, of course! Orchi would not know what else. (it's naughty. lol).

        Wanna throw a snowball, but no snow? No problem. Get a lyrical snowball from Brian, the lyrical snowman!

        • BRIAN & ANGELA

          Well FRED ~ I visited PEARL HARBOUR in March 2000 and I didn't see no SNOW ~ maybe that is a blessing of HAWAII ? Thanks for you comment ~ Lyrical Snowballs never sting ! BRIAN

          Anything but the cold - as I have said before I suffer from a cold induced allergy (bit like the reverse of heat rash) and am currently taking full prescription anti-histamines and yet I'm still suffering really badly so talk of snowballs - urk - still a great write though.

          • BRIAN & ANGELA

            Sorry about that MIKE but it is W*N*E* (I always bleep naughty words !) Pleased you appreciated the Shape if not the Subject ! I had an AUNTY HISTAMINE but she emigrated to Hawaii for the CLI~MATE and fell in love with a PRI~MATE ! ~ BRIAN

            Wonderful contour poem, Brian! Very Cute! Well written. Haven't had a snowball fight in a while!

            • BRIAN & ANGELA

              THANKS CHRIS ~ You're never to old for snowball fight or ??? ! Pleased you liked the shape & subject ~ Warm Hugs ~ Brian !

              Good fun write, but I still reckon that snow is best seen on Christmas Cards.

              • BRIAN & ANGELA

                CAREFUL GRANDAD ~ Showing you age again ~ you're never too old for a snowball fight ! BRIAN

                  I’ll be the referee, watching from the sidelines with a glass of gluawein to keep me warm.

                  Mio Caro Amico BRIAN...
                  Una bella poesia! Shape
                  poems are fun to write!
                  During poetry month, I
                  concentrated teaching
                  shape poems to my seven
                  years old students! Fun, fun,
                  fun was had by all!
                  Grazie!
                  Un Forte abbraccio e baci...
                  ~ Laura~

                    GRATZIE LAURA ~ MIA CARA AMICA ~ Pleased you liked it ~ My students are all 17+ and alas as a lecturer in Applied Science POETRY is not on the \"Official Curriculum\" However I do write Poems on DNA ~ Photosynthesis ~ Global Warming etc as \"aide memoires\". Kids love poetry and getting them to encapsulate a poem about a FISH in the shape of FISH really makes them think. It is actually easier FREEHAND than with a computer ! In my experience teaching any age group an be FUN ! Buona Notte ~ Baci e Abbracci de Natale ~ BRIAN "Pupazzo di Nieve"

                    • Laura🌻

                      Sei il mio bel pupazzo di neve!☃️
