Cold autumn

Cold autumn

A Poem by Ioana Mihai


The cold wind of autumn embraces me unknowingly,
Touching my face, my skin, my hands, violently
It tries to get deep into my bones
Until I feel a raging hurt that numbs
And I won’t get colder, no matter how hard it tries
The warmth in my heart can’t ease its burning fires.
Which is harder to live with? Being on fire or colder?
Beautiful autumn, your coldness only makes my fire burning stronger.
I want your colours and leaves more than your coldness
I could reflect my light within them, into brighter colours
I could make shapes of love…sharing smiles,
warming you and keep the winter away between us, for longer.

I love the autumn. I feel such comradery with the changing leaves as my seasons wear towards winter. But if I must be cold and barren in the grave at last; let me be like the autumn leaves, burning is fabulous beauty and color until I surrender my life like the springs and summers of so many others passed. Your poem is a lovely reminder that some warmth remains yet. It is an affirmation of life. Thank you for that. Bless, F.

Thought provoking piece with the interesting part being that both hot and cold burn if you get to much and with proper distance they warm and cool; balance is key.

I might feel being on fire is harder to live with...burned by love does make our hearts cold...so I guess it is a dichotomy between the two.
Illuminating write, with words that make us feel the cold, then the heat, and vice-versa.
