The Cold Winter (poem)

I can’t recall a winter quite so cold

Or silence which was buried by the snow

My memory of things is hard to hold

The flame which offered warmth has lost its glow


The wind has taken summer far away

The flowers from those moments all have died

The window to my future frozen gray

The exit for some reason was denied


The sun which kissed spring’s morning wanders past

In search of fragrance dancing mid the air

A special time which ever meant to last

And when it wakes again will it be there


I can’t recall when winter bore such frost

Than when eyes opened to a world I lost

The cold within is much worse than the cold outside. :) Beautiful and sad, Martin.

Martin, your words speak volumes.

You are still the poet master!

A frozen feeling in the heart is so much more a bitter winter than one in nature. So beautifully expressed, Martin.

Profound and true ...nothing worse than a heart that is frozen in time while the eyes look out upon the frozen earth ... sad one. Aw, the video is not working either on my end, very sad indeed.

Up and more and sharing

Hugs, Faith Reaper

Look at shapes of the hoary frost on the windows, for they are all different and hold their own beautiful respites.
