Falling into winter

       


Falling into Winter


I feel "fall" coming
I feel it start to shadow
my inner light
soon to be eclipsed by
the dread of winter
or should I say
the dead of winter
I despise the power
it has over me

I am a child of spring
a child of summer
I love the wind in my hair
and the sun of my face
cares seem farther away
in the warmth of summer

although I do find "Fall"
stunning with its colors
of red and gold
I hate what 
creeps up
behind it
endless days of
gray and bitter cold

I must always keep thinking
spring is on the other side
of winter
I hold tight to the memory
of golden sunshine
and the rebirth
of green

This is very nice.  I live in the south and one of the nice things about it is that we rarely get rough winters.  I've lived in New England and had enough of those to last me a lifetime!

I HAVE MISSED YOU!! MY ALERTS HAVE BEEN MESSING UP ON ME THIS WEEK.
I ENJOYED THIS POEM ALOT. MY FAVORITE TIME OF THE YEAR IS FALL. BUT, NOTHING COMPARES TO A SNOWY WHITE BEAUTIFUL CHRISTMAS. :)
HOPE TO HEAR FROM YA!!

Thanx for your comments  :-p   (Funny tho, 'cuz I embrace the winter; the cold winds that chill deeply seems to be related to the sadness that runs parallel.)  Great shot too!
