serenity of winter ...

the quiet peace of snow ~

breaks the silence of winter ...


Winter Nights
Adrian Wait

What is this feeling within my heart;

Concealed by daylight hours, in a shroud of taut restraint.

Winter evenings consume, yesterdays pursue me,

Smiling, speaking, acting – I can cope, I can cope….

An injured heart bares healing in the nearness of love,

Yet love becomes frigid when winter sweeps in, I am alone.

The world is cold, my heart laments in fearful silence

Winter, winter, where are your friends?

Betrayed by the sheath of night, rejoicing in decay

In scornful silence, reflecting on unfulfilled dreams,

Dreading the night, enduring the day. Winter.

Hopes and Dreams, rest upon a cradle of love,

Unconditional, fruitful, forbearing, eternal,

Winter steals, freezes, and denies.

To be alone in this season, is to be alone,

No voices, no echoes, no gentle memories shared.

A solitary tree yielding to an unfeeling winter,

Surrendering its leaves to winters steel sky.

Fleeting Sunshine, stolen, lacking of kindness, or warmth

Sheets of invasive rain, such unforgiving indifference

Winter is reconciliation without forgiveness

Yet, it is the door to Spring, and the resurrection of hope.
