Cold - Poem by Ray Andrews

Fractured bright light in inverted cones
Turqoise blue hues in iceberg's bones
White covered peaks and tundra's snow
Where polar bears, wolverines and snowgeese go

In my own front yard a winter's yarn
Snowmen and snowflakes flaunt winter's charm
Safe from the house a blizzard's scene
After the snowfall a blanket serene

Blinded eyes from the glare off the snow
Cold warms the heart that adventure knows
The turn of the ski or the ice on a blade
The resonant beauty of a winter's glade

I can't stand still in the winter night
I have to move for the weak sunlight
I stay in motion to warm my skin
With several layer's I'm all tucked in

The soulful warmth of a winter's day
The heat of anger will melt away
The inner healing white made so nice
Anger turns to a shard of ice

    A hard winter scene in the upper reaches of the northern hemisphere which, otherwise also, experience the extreme cold weather conditions. It leaves shivers down the spine. Thanks. (Report) Reply
