I.

Hitting the Slopes

Into the mountains on the first snowfall
my father would share winter mountain strength
with gloved hands we’d ski the trails length
on our waxed skis we would stand up tall.
These were the days my father shared his smile.
These were the days my father spared the rod
our mountain church where we would glimpse at God
I think my dad was proud, just for awhile.
My son and I also take this journey
into the mountains at first sign of snow
to ski awhile even if just to play.
Each turn in the snow its own symphony
the smile on his face is wide and aglow
hoping that his child will be here someday.

II.

In these Decembers
we remember when days changed
along with the snow

smells of cinnamon
and pine trees in the wind
the joy of your laugh

Alpine Skiing Limericks

Riding on chair lift I hold tight
having some fear of such great height
but nothing can compare
to the chill mountain air
view from the top is always a sight.

With wind on your face, you feel free
to flail and fall where people can see
there’s a chance your not hurt
and with fate you will flirt
to speed to the lodge, you have to pee!

So break out my ski and my boot
early in the morning I recruit
and out into the snow
our family will go
a day on the slopes is always a hoot.

Drink Hot Chocolate out by the snowplow
tend to our wounds, every ouch and ow,
to remember each turn
next time we will learn
for now let’s go home for some chow.

Jamie Lee Hamann

Things have changed over the years. My name is Jamie Lee Hamann and I have a passion for writing short fiction and poetry. I started writing for TCE around 2015 and since then I have finished two collections of poetry "Six Years of Service" and "The Rhyme of the Ancient Middle Class" both available on Amazon and plans for more. I share a weekly poem for TCE every Saturday. I started work on my first novel and I am using TCE to share my progress as I go. I share new excerpts of this work every weekend. A Science Fiction novel that I hope is enjoyable to read. I currently live in Lemmon Valley NV with my family. I am excited to share my poetry and my writing. If you desire to find my other work on the internet feel free to stop by my website simplepoetics.weebly.com. The website offers articles on poetry, poems, and links to all my other writing.
