“Winter Comes Too Soon”, a poem

December 26, 2013


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!





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.
