Voiceless Snowman

No bike rides today.

Snowy Bike Post

I went out on the trail anyway.

I left a little fellow on a bench a long the trail.

I hope no one sits on him.

Benched Snowman

Then I wanted to come home and make a real snowman.   Apologies to Little Benched Snowman above.   He is real.   When I got home I had intended to make a life size snowman.   Carrot nose.  Something eyes.  Sticks for arms.  Even a scarf if necessary.   Oddly the snow would only stick to my gloves.   So the snowman that now adorns my porch is sadly ….depressed.


I think he has a little pink-eye.

And he’s tiny.

And I was going to make him a smile with the cinnamon candies.

But I ate the rest of the candies.

Now this snowman will only contemplate.

And not speak.

He’s only a snowman.

What could he possibly have to say anyway.

    He’s cold because he doesn’t have a hat. And you left his friend out on the trail.


  2. It’s beautiful Colleen, I guess making snowman is not as easy as we think, those cartoons can be misleading lol 🙂


    • Exactly. And who makes gloves that stick to snow? You can’t make a good snowball, fort, or snowman if you pat/pat/pat and pull your hands away and the snow is split between your hands. It was like snow velcro! 😉


  3. he could have said don’t eat my mouth! 😉

    He is really cute – and he seems very happy – and I’m sure he has a heart too, pink!

    Hilarious. This made me chuckle out loud. He’s crying red-hots….red hots will melt him. 🙂

  8. I like them both! And I love the idea of leaving little snow people at random spots to bring happiness to those who might notice them! I may have to do that! 🙂


  9. I agree with optimistigladness! He’s crying because of the spicy cinnamon candies. Now, had you made his eyes, nose, and mouth out of M&M’s, he probably would’ve come to life! 🙂
