Old Man Winter Isn't THAT Old
Old Man Winter's
not that old.
He's still virile.
It's so cold.

He's not weak.
His strength is scary.
His bulging biceps
leave us wary.

Healthy lungs?
He lacks no breath.
When he coughs,
there's brutal death.

Caution! When he
blows his nose,
arctic blasts
bring swirling snows.

This old man
still has his teeth.
When he bites
there's no relief.

And his fingers
sure can reach.
From New York
to Newport Beach.

blizzards, icy roads.
He's to blame.
He's not that old.

If he tried
to buy some beer,
he'd be carded.
That's quite clear.

Thanks Greg. With 6" + on the ground of new snow and drifts up to the udders, the only good news is there are no smart alack high school kids out cow tipping!

Won't "global warming" (aka "climate change") eventually put Old Man Winter out of business?

Sunday Rhymes & Reasons
Published June 4, 2009

Sunday Rhymes and Reasons is a compilation of inspirational poetry by America's pastor/poet laureate, Greg Asimakoupoulos. In this, his third volume of poetry, Pastor Greg paints word pictures that portray both the struggle and fulfillment that define a life of faith. His repertoire of rhymes celebrate rite-of-passage occasions like birth, baptism, marriage and death as well as the major holidays of the church and culture. It is a volume that illustrates the poet's love of words and of popular culture. The author dips his brush into a paint box of hubris, humor and honesty.

"Gloria and I have been encouraged by word pictures from Greg's pen that have celebrated both our ministry and God's presence in our world."Bill Gaither, Gospel music composer/performer

"Gifted poet Greg Asimakoupoulos is a dear friend of our family. His poetry blesses, comforts, entertains, and provides inspiration for every season of life."Natalie Grant, singer/songwriter/recording artist
