As I sit and watch the winter

 

As I sit and watch the winter time pass, it comes.

Creeping like a sudden shiver of callous and chilling cold,

Enveloping the torso like a cluster of clambering cockroaches,

As if thousands upon thousands of tiny ice prickled feet were furrowing this once warm and caring chest.

 

As I sit and watch the winter leaves fall, it growls.

Sweeping the streets like dancers come such gusts.

Pirouetting with passion, persuasive winds pursue the leaves that once bore such beauty and poise,

Leaves now strewn like slaughtered soldiers, silent, unified in their surrender. 

 

As I sit and watch the winter sky above, it appears.

Falling like streams of sinuous shimmering stars burst sensational symphonies of snow,

Coating rooftops and roads like a smattering of iced cakes,

Lining vacant lanes with white wintry lace amongst fields frocked in silken snow. 

 

As I sit and watch the winter, it begins.
