Crochet The Weather

January 2016
Conceptualizing the weather has now become a habit and in 2016 we will be creating a crochet block for each day this year. 

The centre of the block is the temperature
the outer block is the sky.

In 2016 we will also be featuring the poetry of

Dawna Proudman

January breeds gratitude

blowing snow
black ice
frozen windshield wipers

then dry pavement
for the drive home
beneath clear benevolent skies

screeching winds
dance the dance of seventeen veils
night after night

then perfect stillness
diamond studded snowbanks
swathed in moonlight

sinus infections, colds, flues,
carpets littered with crumpled kleenex
every task an uphill odyssey

then an entire week when nobody
not even the cat
coughs, sneezes or pukes

monochrome day after monochrome day
everything turns old potato gray
even the cat stays indoors and sleeps

then one unblemished blue sky
cracks smiles open on every face

every tongue sings hallelujah, hallelujah, hallelujah

~ Dawna Proudman
