Saturday Morning In Winter Poem by Jette Blackstone

Saturday Morning In Winter

Rating: 4.8

Morning scratches at the glass.
and the screen glares back white.
Boiling water recalls the heat of thoughts,
a small bird lands on a branch of sunrise.

And whipping the cream to clot,
as if the cream will stop tomorrow,
I look out the window, hopeful
at the snow, the icy dunes.

What strength a lover has
who pretends nonchalance!
My fingers freeze at the keyboard
When he calls me back to bed.

boiling water recalls the heat of thoughts... What a marvellous line. I could pick out others too. I think your poem has great warmth. and I love the humour in the last stanza. Into my list of favourite poems is where it is heading pronto! Must check out your other poems soon.

Thanks Tom! It's either the boiling water or the anticipation of the caffeine-laden coffee that will soon be ready...until of course she's interrupted in the last stanza.... thanks for reading. ;)

Lovely poetry. Great original imagery. Reminds me of Great Poet Lorca's magnificent poems.

After all this well-deserved praise, Not much left to say, Don't want to be repetitive So, I'll tell you in my way, 'An immortal and great poem You have written on this day! ' It's just one of those forever poems, That will never go away, A touch of spirituality More than words can evev say.
