An Ode to Winter
a clash of seasons meeting
and heartbreak’s lonely cheer.
Cover my face with lotion
cover our souls with blankets
Out all night,
champagne stars and high heeled sidewalks
leading to some crazy one night
that fills your soul for three seconds
then poof it’s gone.
Shining lights and sweet, cold goodnights
standing close, boots touching, cheeks warm and cold
both at once.
Family hugs turtlenecks and warm rustic soup
cookies pies exchanging pleasantries
and sugary goodbyes.
Stark moonlight nights that seem empty in their silent cold.
Go inside to fireplaces and hot chocolate
warm your fingers around mugs
and curl up close your eyes
and dream of warm snow.
