Winter in Michigan

An Imayo Poem

I read an article on the Writer’s Digest website about Imayo poems today and was inspired to write my own. They consist of 4 lines that have 12 syllables each. Each line has a separation between the 7th and 8th syllables.

 Winter in Michigan
Rain then snow and topped with ice – children home from school
Much too cold to play outside – feels twenty below
Cocoa and video games – books and art supplies
Entire house is littered – piles two feet deep
