Winter 2018

a

Writer’s Note: So this was last week but the cold continues… It just never stops!

Braving yet another cold day
How can this shiver go away
I wish I could be at home, stay
Hibernate ’til spring makes its way

I’ll never get used to this weather
Leave me alone with my comforter
Cold, get lost! Give me some breather
Spring, rescue me from this winter

This has been brutal, it’s endless
The ice and the chill are limitless
It’s tiring, it’s giving me stress
Sun, show your warmth, stop this madness

Piercing Cold

Cool breeze is the greeting
In my early morning
The wind chill is piercing
Numbness! I’m freezing!

Outside, I am standing
And I don’t mind waiting
As long as it’s snowing
And wind is not blowing

Thick clothes I am wearing
And I am still trembling
Hands and knees are shaking
Headache – I am having

Mercury is dropping
Thermostat is breaking
Now for spring, I’m longing
As this cold is piercing
