Frozen Pipes in Nebraska: A Poem by Carol Good

Frozen pipe with icicles
Written by Carol Good

Among my other writing endeavours I have been attending PJ Writing with Sue Reynolds of Inkslingers for the past two years. The daily one hour Zoom gatherings have an informal early sign-in where the two to three dozen writers from around the world chat. Recently one writer asked for guidance about what to do about frozen pipes in her rented home in Nebraska. She was flooded with advice by the Canadians which inspired my poem below.

Zoom sparks exchanges
What to do
when pipes freeze
in Nebraska

Let water trickle
Open all taps
Allow air to escape

Hard won wisdom
offered by those
in the frozen North
