Winter Cold


Spring is here, yet winter has not left us.
It's a time for blossoms to come forth - but they are freezing
from the cold.
Look out a window and see the bright sun shining everywhere,
see the warmth hanging in the air?
Outside the door, I take a step, my breath I can see blowing
in the wind.
It's cold against my skin and quickly I step back in.
Contented now to watch the warm looking sunshine from a window
within my heated room.

    What do we call a season falling between the final days of winters and opening days of springs? I am not sure but this poem of yours is bang on the point. Thanks for this beautiful piece of poetry. (Report) Reply

    I can read between the lines, an indecision about life's choices. Sometimes we choose, Sometimes God does it for us. Thanks for sharing. :) (Report) Reply

I am the only being whose doom
No tongue would ask no eye would mourn
I never caused a thought of gloom
A smile of joy since I was born

In secret pleasure - secret tears
