A Cold Winters Night


Leokadia Durmaj, Australia

A rainbow of dreams is unfolding before my eyes,

Glistening snowflakes cover the earth outside.

Snuggling up on a blanket near a blazing fireplace,

Sipping hot chocolate with melting marshmallows’

Stealing sweet kisses from your soft delicious lips,

Smiling, hugging, being playful, teasing you just a little ~

On this beautiful cold winters night,

A picturesque dream unfolds outside.

There is a stillness that only time sets free,

As snowflakes tumble to the ground beneath,

I see a glow of shimmering colours reflecting;

Creating magic, just like a rainbow in all our dreams

Winter’s dreams can be lonely and still ~

Thou promise of love evolving, radiates warmth within.

The taste of pleasures in the rising flame ablaze,

Can lay witness to more treasures lost in passions embrace ~

Locked within my breath, I sigh at the night’s sweet invite,

Beneath all the heavenly stars; here I rest in your arms tonight.

      Your poems always transport me to another place. I was enjoying laying on the blanket in front of a blazing fireplace and I was looking forward to the promise that the most magical winter's night would bring.
