Defeat

In the ashen skies

iron clouds consume the shine

of the winter sun.

Stillness

Leafless trees stand tall

While the blizzard rages on.

They bend but won’t fall.

Unreqiuted

Snowflakes for blushing cheeks,

icy wind for tender lips –

winter sentiment.

Goosebumps

 

A single raindrop

on your warm bear skin in June:

a sample of winter.

 

Afternoon zen

Torrential rain

pitter-patters on the leaves,

singing afternoon lullabies.
