Deadwood Forest

For ancient people, the first chill of winter signaled a time of famine, disease and death. They gathered and called on their gods to help them through it to spring.

Today, snug in heated houses with super markets open all winter, the day has become a cutesy dress up day for kids and candy, with much movie fantasy for grown-up kids.

Chill in the Air
There is a chill in the air,
as evening falls.
Everything is dying,
as winter, close by, calls.
The smell of rotting leaves,
is pungently real.
A creepy crawlly feeling,
begins to steal.
Into hearts and minds,
now having to deal.
With death and disease,
imagined or real.
As the night sounds,
of the wolf and the owl.
Put fear in hearts,
with the hoot and the howl.
And the wind plays tricks,
with the clank and the yowl.
Insane in their fright,
redemption they call.
For this one night,
they give their all.
But death still comes stalking,
without remorse.
And the wind howls,
in due course.
For there is no escaping,
winter's wrath.
Reminders are everywhere,
along the path,
to death.

I like this very much, Ron... It takes me on a journey of spectral fantasy but also into the primeval and wilds of real natural lore. I feel like I'm travelling that path with you, trying not to snap a twig or break the eery silence.... Good stuff! xx

Yes is getting very chilly here in england, i love the autumn colours especially in the sun, was walking through the woods the other day it was beautiful, can't wait til summer again though i don't like the cold what i would have done in the old days with no central heating i don't know. Well done. God bless. Baz

Best way to deal with the slight chill,
Is to get high till I have my fill,
Better yet, though I don't have one, is to take a pill,
So light up my pipe & more bud do I with fire, kill...

the aura pervades even today -- while winter offers the occasional day or so of breathtaking beauty from snow or perhaps freezing rain -- there exists for me a Draconian atmosphere of perverse justice with winters' onset -- the ancients were not the only ones to sense that mood -- an appropriate subject and told like the master story teller you are -- I bid you joy, love and peace my dear friend -- Jon Michael

Good one Ron, very fitting and very smooth. It rolls right off my tongue. Thanks Dick
