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

Mood Swings

Yesterday was the warmest ever
Yet today feels like the coldest weather
Yesterday quickly became distant
When the mood had changed in an instant

Like you who were celebrating with glee
Then today your smile I can no longer see
What happened that caused you so much pain
All happy thoughts were washed away in vain

Like a fickle weather that’s ever changing
One day you’re fine, the next day you’re sulking
I wish I could take all your blues away
And bring back the warmth of yesterday

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

Early Winter

Standing outside on a very cold November
What’s up with this freaking weather?
My knees start to weaken
My body is now numb, I’m frozen!

Brrr… what a day for the train to be late
Grrr… and I have an appointment at eight
I’ll freeze to death, I’m not David Blaine
15 minutes now, where’s the train?

Oh Canada, what’s up with the early winter?
Early welcome for frost bites and blisters
After 20 minutes, finally! Train has arrived
Keep me warm please, I want to stay alive
