Cold winters tale

Cold and icy

Slippery underfoot,

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.
