“Winter Comes Too Soon”, a poem

 

 
This logo above is the Narcissists Slayer Award.  I am honored to receive from CZBZ’s blog (to the right side listed).  CZ is a phen. writer and especially on narcissism and what it does in our lives and in general society. At first I thought the logo was a nose, or perhaps garlic (I think it is…..But I am honored, I tell ya.)  I don’t write too much anymore on Narcissism, but damn If I haven’t got them in my FOO (Family Of Origin).  It’s like walking in a cow pasture around narcissists.  Thank you, CZ!
 
Merry Christmas!

Merry Christmas!

WINTER COMES TOO SOON

Autumn,

That too-fickle season

Has thrown off Joseph’s coat

And turned to winter.

-

Gone the leaves

Brilliant matinees of airborne jewels

Illuminated in prismatic splendor

By the sun piercing a brittle blue sky–

Replaced with blackened limbs

Stretching naked arms towards a glowering sky.

-

The season of alms and hunger has begun.

Gone the pelting rains

Which poured down window panes

Like crinkled crepe paper

Distorting the view of the shearing outside.

-

Gone too, are the golden sunsets

Where a beam of light transposes

Distant trees, paints the belly of clouds.

-

The leaves and color are gone

And that is as it should be.

What is now outside

Hints at what is beginning inside–

A long passage through a muted season.

    wish it was mine….I had it in a file, but didn’t have the painter included….I believe it is early Dutch.

    Thanks, CS….and Happy New Year!

    Love, Jane

    The painting is beautiful – everyone on the natural ice.

    My favourite bit from the poem:
    What is now outside

    Hints at what is beginning inside–

    A long passage through a muted season.

    Appreciating more of what winter has to offer :).

    Yep…to me, TR, winter gives calm and peace, a serenity and silence…a sparseness of palette that is a healing balm to our pysches. Sometimes! When the damn dogs aren’t howling or fighting the back yard. LOL!

    It is a long passage of fertility in the making…this winter…or can be. It’s all how we apply it. I love winter best because it concentrates the senses and can be the most productive season of all…

    Hugs, Jane
