I wrote a series of poems about the seasons between 1994 and 1995. This winter poem was written on December 27, 1994. At this time, I was living in the Midwest where the winters are incredibly cold and dreary. I was dreaming of a cozy day in front of a fireplace, instead of another day of dreary gray skies.
All the time.
The things that remind me of winter
Rush into my head.
It took me time to realize
That fall is dead.
I have to look at the winter ahead.
In the winter time I feel the need
To hold someone close.
In the winter is when you need
Someone to love the most.
How did winter get here so fast?
It seems like a winter from the past.
Fall, I’m sorry I let you go.
It’s time to watch the winter snow.
