Winter Through the Senses, Poetry

Image contains: Abbie, smiling.After a mostly brown Christmas, we have a white New Year, so I decided to share the following poem of mine that appears in the current issue of The Weekly Avocet. Click on the Play button below the poem to hear me read it. Happy New Year.

Winter Through the Senses

 

In the silent snowfall,
see flakes swirl.
Amid white-covered streets, sidewalks,
feel snow crunch beneath your boots.
Hear the rumble of a distant snow blower.

Indoors, feel the warmth of slippers on your feet.
Breathe the aroma of steaming cocoa.
Savor the flavor of its frothy, chocolaty goodness,
safe, warm while snow keeps falling.

  1. I like this poem and I remember reading it in the past.
    Snow has always been a vital part of my life and I look forward to its arrival each winter.
    Here in PA, we have not yet had a “good” snow – just a light dusting and like you, a soggy wet Christmas. It is raining as I write this. Congrats on the publication in The Weekly Avocet.
