Winter Blues

Winter Blues

A Poem by Gee
"

Simple words

"
Today, the sun laboured to barely half sky height,
a long summer's exertions seemingly wearying it's ascent
before it slid slowly to the horizon,
casting shadows long and eastward.
Trees that were lit like beacons
as autumn died its beautiful death,
stood stark, arthritic, naked,
their branches grasping for a warmth now gone.
A lone crow cawed, it's cry haunting
as it echoed through the copse,
before trailing off into the distance across fields now barren,
summers harvest long since reaped.
In the coming weeks, months, all will be dusted white,
crisp underfoot, as winter slowly, surely, takes hold.
I shivered, pulled my collar around my ears,
" roll on spring " I uttered...........

Poetic and descriptive. I can tell from the way this is written that you appreciate nature. there are some very nice lines, "A lone crow cawed, its cry haunting", is one of them. I also enjoyed the alliteration in that line. You conjured up some beautiful imagery and I very much enjoyed this poem. Thank you.

As I wake to another two feet of snow, hearing it is with us until Thursday, I said exactly the same...Roll on spring indeed. I have never felt farther from a Barbie in my life.
You capture the blues so well. :)

Well I think your 'simple words' are truly beautiful. This is such an evocative little poem, cleverly expressed with imaginative use of words. I could feel the chill at the end too. Hopefully Spring will soon be here and the sun can fill us with new inspiration.

You have such a way with words! Your vocabulary is expansive as evidenced in this poem. Also I loved the imagery. A favorite line: "Trees that were lit like beacons/as Autumn died its beautiful death".

Oh how I dread the coming Winter! Right after Christmas time, a light-deprived depression sets in. My body never seems to get warm. I live in fear of falling on the ice covered sidewalks. Spring can't come soon enough for me.

This is one of the very best descriptions of this time of the year, as it appears to me out my vast mountain panorama . . . I watch & watch as the season unfolds, wishing I could find a better way to describe it . . . which is what you've done here, gotten inside my head & found those perfect words! I love it! I can see & feel it! (((HUGS))) Fondly, Margie
