Sloppy Slush


Sloppy slush
Upon my street
Messy mush
Makes soggy feet
Getting mail
Slippery trail
Winter’s task becomes travail

Author Notes:

This is what you would call a “wet” snow. That is a photo of my mailbox. It makes getting the mail a very treacherous task, not to mention a sloppy one. Need waterproof boots or shoes for sure. My driveway has an incline, so great care in getting there is also a necessity.

This poem is a Whitney.
The Whitney is also known as an American Asian Poem. This is a syllabic form, created by Betty Ann Whitney. It has exactly seven lines.

Syllable Pattern: 3, 4, 3, 4, 3, 4, 7

No rhyme scheme is required, but is acceptable, if desired.
For this poem I did use a rhyme scheme of: ababccc.

This photograph was taken by the author himself on February 29, 2012.
