Battle with Winter #winter #poetry #photography


shadows

winter’s harshness

dealt a blow today

one you will never feel

or know

but for the life

of one frail bird

struggling to survive

it took the wind

from beneath her wings

her song swallowed

she did her best

resolved

she used her two feet

to get her

to a place

where she could

lay her head

and fold her broken wing

*

Each day, I watch nature as it tries to endure the cold. Last week I had my own battle with winter and lost. So I like the bird am minus one wing and striving to write with a hand that does not know how.

stay warm and safe…

  1. I always worry about the birds and the critters who must endure and survive the worst that winter brings us. Somehow, they usually make it better than I do, and I’m inside where it’s warm. Nothing is as bitter as the seasons. Nothing is as resiliant as the creatures of nature.
