Winter Wakes Me From My Sleep

Winter Wakes Me From My Sleep

A Poem by Miranda Olsen
"

Florida winters are short, but can get frigid

"

Winter wakes me from my sleep

The cold makes me feel alive


I feel a jolt of energy

Whenever the breeze blows by


My lungs feel like they're tight

It's getting hard to breathe


But instead of feeling fear

Everything feels exciting


Then my heart starts racing

It's beating out of control


I feel more alive then ever

The cold has made me reborn


Winter wakes me from my sleep

I get up as the sun rises


I wake up shivering and frigid

The start of many surprises


One morning the dew has frozen

Jack Frost has painted the grass


Winter is finally here

Though, sadly, it never lasts.

Just today I was outside with the wind blowing in my face and even my neck. I couldn't wait to get back to my car. lol I do like winter snow though and I like this poem too.

Nice writing.
