Winter Solitude

Winter Solitude by Diana Pierce

I feel like a hermit in my own home,

Living on top this hill in the dead of winter,

Driveway drifts with blowing snow,

Thawing to freeze like a river flows.

Source

This chicken driver can tell you true,

It sucks to deal with winter blues.

It robs you of your freedoms and your thoughts.

You don’t know what to do or what to not.

Source

Down one slope of icy terrain to spin upon the next,

Should you quit your job?

And wait for spring,

In hopes you’ll find the next?

Source

Silly things embrace your mind,

Drastic measures follow,

Solitude is no excuse,

Crazy old hoot owl.

      I completely understand the winter blues. Cabin fever is another way to express it.

      Thank you, Oscarlites for stopping by. I often have cabin fever because I don't feel like going out and about. Spring should cure that feeling. It sure seems like a long ways off.

      Beautiful presentation of the winter solitude affecting one's life. All of us experience feeling blue during winters.

      Thank you, Venkatachari M for your kind words. Winter blues always seems to find me. Sometimes sooner than other times. We really shouldn't wish our lives away. But I'm ready for spring.
