Another Winter

Vintage Words


Mostly, it is because it's cold

and dreary and cloudy

and icy. Winter. Snow is hard

to walk on and gets in your

boots turning to slush

and water. Winter.


No flowers, no bright colored

shirts and gymshoes. Boots

are usually brown or black

and overcoats are usually brown

or black. Winter.


Then, like a curtain pulled,

the sun vanishes most days

and not even the weather

lady knows what is about

to happen.


Mainly, the uncertainty factor

being a big part of my dislike

of the coldest months, I prefer

summer. Spring and Autumn

are too close to winter, so

give me sunshine and heat

and winter can go be dauntingly

and darkly chilling elsewhere.






Author's Notes/Comments: 

For Dylan

1 thing though. Hot chocolate and a furry throw makes winter cozy.

But your forgetting the

But your forgetting the beauty of it all! It's a soft, white blanket! Colora coens from white, they contrast nicely. And the cold is good, if it wantt cold, what would e the point of warm and cozy fireplaces? And got chocolate? And there would be no sweaters! No blankets! The world would always be warm, I hate that! The change of seasons is much nicer than a constant season.

It is snowing here now


icicles hang from the sun porch - in irony. Gotta go get thr grandson. Better see how much is expected.


I wish snow

was not cold

and beach sands

not too hot.

I want sunshine

to not burn

anything precious

and snow banks

and ice patches

to be very

very small.

another good one!!

i agree with your weather preferences, but not healing woman's.  it snowed once in south texas, and it was a bit disturbing to watch snow fall on sandy beaches and cactus.   some part of the brain just says "WTF??!!" like some law of physics has been violated lol

Cold & Old Bones


So far no terrible arthritis or cold bones syndrome, but in a few years, I may be looking for some really heavy fleece lined underwear. Brrrrrr.... We are promised a mild winter - yaaaaaay!
