Blanketed Feelings In Winter..... - Poem by ritty patnaik

as i lie there,
body and mind shivers
with the cold touch
of winter.
a drunken mans shadow
in a sheet of snow........
yet......winter! a time for revelry
and a time for festivities.
a time for buds,
to open arms to the sun,
and a time for flowers
to show their innocent ego....

winter awaits to welcome
fires warmth in the evenings,
pining for someone......
its touch bringing the fog about,
and white shadows float
in the morning mist........
sheltering some,
under roofs and blankets....
and others, impoverished
in their bare nakedness.

winter remains in the warmth
of the dancing girl s lips......
or in the woodpeckers beaks.

a touch of cold sometimes
steals the sleep,
sometimes widows lonely songs,
so bleak.

yet in winter i feel
the sweet smelling incence of love
in the evenings, i see it,
in the changing of waves..

winter leaves me alone,
in my blanketted world,

at peace, away from the gaze of all.............
