Winter Blues

A Poem by Yellow Butterfly

Japanese Tanka


Awoke to darkness

Unsure what today will bring

How long this season

bestowed upon will it reign?

As this cold winter sets in..

The most beautiful winters I've known were in Poland. At night discs of ice formed on the lakes and were blown by the wind to the bank where they jingled like sleigh bells.

Though it may have less hours of sunlight than any other season, it is still extremely beautiful to me. I love winter. An enjoyable short poem, nice job butterfly :)

I'm thinking of all the wild outdoor creatures whose lives quite literally hang in the balance from day to day, when the winter chill sets in and begins to bite hard !

A fitting reflective tribute, a fine poem YB !
