This has been one of our worst winters for a while, and I'm tired of it.


TIRED OF WINTER

Winter’s chill
rattles and squalls
at my windows and doors,
struggling to gain entrance.

But despite all my tactics
to keep coldness at bay,
gradual absorption assails
through spaces unaware.

Then, little by little
my world inside shifts
from warmth to rawness,
seizing the comforts of home.

Very well expressed.
I've had it- enough of this. Please.
But- this spring should be amazing. I will find mountain streams where I have never seen them before- snow melt will make this sprong alive like I have never seen.
That I'll take.

I think we all seem to have had terrible winters this year...I have never seen snow so deep here in Hull, UK....and it does affect our equilibrium which is what you have cleverly captured here...The cold exploits every nook and cranny....
Roll on Spring!!

Hugs, Diana ....
