Just on the cusp of Christmas weekend and in the middle of Hanukkah, the Winter Solstice has decided to grace us with its presence. While I try to warm up my overworked fingers during the tortures of the cold temperature, please enjoy this poem about all the beauty winter has to offer.
Fallen leaves wisp away with earth's cold winds
Naked trees carve into the skyline
Sunlight cowers behind the moon sooner taking the last of summer’s warmth with it
Snow drapes dresses upon dead foliage
Elegance blankets the Earth
Clouds of warm breaths escaped from our bodies texture the air
Men made of nature's frozen fluff nurtured into life
Seeking warmth we burrow in our homes sipping hot cocoa
Every piece of skin covered in the name of heat conservation
Rosy cheeked and chapped lipped we endure it all
Because winter calls
Now whether you love it or hate it, Winter is here, so find the good in it somehow.
