Is not the wind in your image?

Is not your voice an unpaid primage?

That scavenges upon the soul

an undue haunt of jilted voice.

Hold out the last of withering fingers

to thrash against the stirring winds.

Nothing left to befriend the winter

save pillaged corn and savage crows.

Christy Writes

I've always loved the winter but this year I find myself missing warmer days. It could be that the cold is especially lonesome this year. Great work, LE. I missed reading your poetry!

To me, every day is winter. I can't remember what warmth feels like (not inside anyway). Thanks for giving this a read, Christy :)
