As Winter Progresses

How do you look at Winter?

“I prefer winter and fall, when you feel the bone structure of the landscape. Something waits beneath it; the whole story doesn’t show.” — Andrew Wyeth

In first crisp days
of Winter, strong sun,
waiting wind, I enjoy
walking, re-energizing,
and feeling that Winter
glow on my cheeks.

As Winter progresses,
excessive winds howl,
and black ice dominates
streets.   I would rather
seek a cozy corner, soft
blanket, sound of bubbling
stew, as I sip Cabernet.

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.

  5. The beginning of winters are well spent outside — I too love walking and feeling its soft touch, soon to be followed by its gripping tendencies as it sprawls all over — then it is comforting to be indoors and enjoying the warmth. Well penned! 🙂
