It's so cold poets united poetry pantry #22-sunday scribblings #246-december

Decemmembris creeps back in
as I grab stones to generate
warmth within them.
Fingers rigid – palms smooth.
I roll the cold in circular motions.

Decemmembris enters on
feathers with fine edges.
Smooth to touch, the softness of
a tree’s leaf that breaks away
from the cold.

Decemmembris replaces the
warmth of summer days with
your frigid voice that bites through
the exterior, forming steamy circles
in the air becoming frozen in time.

  7. Sherry I have become quite a wimp when it comes to the cold. But I remember those brutal cold winters vividly. It has been chilly in the evenings lately about 30. A fireplace is the best thing to have, since these homes do not have heating installed.
