Embracing Winter's Warmth.

©-Matthew F. Blowers III

<><><><><><><><><><><><>


It hangs with an icy grip

on the crisp edges of November

waiting to drop in

off of the North winds fury.

with the howling shrieks

of each frigid breeze.


It will enter suddenly with

the sole purpose of creating

frozen stalactites

of our nostril hairs

as well as our

frigid fingers and numb toes.


Its chilly glare haunts all

as it strips the multi-colored

quilts of October.

and then beds us down

in stark white blankets.


We feel enslaved

in our iced castles

a hyper-nation,

left in a hibernation

of shivering souls

in a crystallized tomb.


Our weathermen

tell us spooky stories

warning us to stay at home

from all that is abominable.


It is nothing worthy of worship

yet still we light

many burnt offerings

to its vast powers.


Yet it is a quiet place,

diamond studded and

muffled by the frozen

condensation of most noise

and there is a lot to be said

for the warm comfort of

two snuggling up together

as the world lies buried.


Endless splendor

stays untouched,

by the rush to go out

and brace its wrath

and so we find more time

to spend with each other

that is seldom seen under

a bedazzling sun.


Yet the crunch of four feet

tempting it's bite,

and two hands sharing

10 fingers on short walks in

Winter's charms

brings the realization

that the music of love

endures all

that may fall upon us

as each brittle note thaws

into a delightful brew Ha Ha.


It can be savored

in the souls of those

who find contentment

by embracing Winter's warmth.


Peace and love to you and yours

in this Newborn winter

meant to draw us

much closer together.

Let us give Thanks for this

long, white bookmark in the

busy chapters of our lives.
