Winter

birds sing no longer
fall has come and gone it's way
winter now remains

long dark shadowed nights
as we sleep closer in bed
waiting for the light

sunlight to warm us
melting out frozen spirits
till dark comes again

The cycle of freezing and thawing--unloving and loving again--this is the thing that so confounds me!

Susie,cuddling together I like but waiting for warmer temps,not so much. Summer in the city is usually HHH. I always long for the fall and the quiet of deep winter
Thanks so much for reading my work
