Winter Cold Poem by RoseAnn V. Shawiak


Spring is here, yet winter has not left us.
It's a time for blossoms to come forth - but they are freezing
from the cold.
Look out a window and see the bright sun shining everywhere,
see the warmth hanging in the air?
Outside the door, I take a step, my breath I can see blowing
in the wind.
It's cold against my skin and quickly I step back in.
Contented now to watch the warm looking sunshine from a window
within my heated room.

    Outside the door, I take a step, my breath I can see blowing

    A beauty of description that has been frozen in this short poem on winter. Like poet the reader while going outside of this poem sees the breaths of his liking blowing in the wind and thinks to remain in the warmth of the poetry...................10 (Report) Reply

    As a child I would always peep out the window with my face
    pressed close to the glass and watching it mist up. Cold outside
    but nice and toasty inside. Heartwarming. (Report) Reply

    What do we call a season falling between the final days of winters and opening days of springs? I am not sure but this poem of yours is bang on the point. Thanks for this beautiful piece of poetry. (Report) Reply

    I can read between the lines, an indecision about life's choices. Sometimes we choose, Sometimes God does it for us. Thanks for sharing. :) (Report) Reply
