“winter solitude”

Written for:  Carpe Diem Weekend Meditation #12 – Christmas Troiku

winter solitude –
in a world of one color
the sound of wind                             © Matsuo Basho (1644-1694)

winter solitude
chatter muted by earmuffs
animals hibernate

chatter muted by earmuffs
lips freeze in wind
white air

animals hibernate
people take shelter indoors

About purplepeninportland

I am a freelance poet, born and bred in Brooklyn, New York. I live with my husband, John, and two charming rescue dogs–Marion Miller and Murphy. We spent eight lovely years in Portland, OR, but are now back in New York. My goal is to create and share poetry with others who write, or simply enjoy reading poetry. I hope to touch a nerve in you, and feel your sparks as well.
