Cold and icy
White frost covering every nook,
Bites the face as you view your breath
Witnessing the steam exhale from your constricted chest,
Ice dew webs decorate the scene around,
Toes and fingers go so numb
Nose is red, cheeks feel the burn.
Winter cuts like a knife
Maybe we should all hibernate at this time
I long for home and long for warmth
Summer memories now long gone
Chilled to the bone yet still better off
Than those living rough who have no home
And have to sleep out in this
Where going to sleep every night is a risk
As they never know if they are going to wake up.
