Winter With the Five Senses
See the Winter breeze
Harshly blanketing the grass.
Blades frozen stiffly.
The wonder unpleasant and immense.
Hear the Winter wind howling
Its songs musically cacophonic.
The raucous tunes unnerving
And to the ears a burden.
Feel the biting fluffy snow
Resting in the garden.
Color erased by frigid flakes
Crunching forward in heavy boots.
Smell the wood of bitterness
As you walk through the frostwork.
The fragile trees and shrubs
A scent of regret and melancholy.
Taste the chestnuts of the Christmases
And the sour of cranberry sauce.
Things that still make you happy
Inside this gloomy, leaden Winter season.
