December

it's december;
holiday thoughts chill me
more so than this breeze
as it wraps me up
in winter's blanket

i want to be like the trees
colorless and bare
of everything
that weighs me down

i want to dance free
in the wind
not snap
like dead branches
in storm's fury

i'm snapping though
and it's only december
i can feel the weight
of winter's wrath
pulling me down
grounding me

i am falling
blizzard-like
more than a few inches deep
everything is turning white
fading fast
within death's grasp
i am december's ending

    I admire how you throw yourself into the Storm, and you always emerge more meaningful. Great emotional expression Sandra. J.A.B.

    I love this one Sandra, even though it makes me shiver with your cold over there. Well written, my friend Peter

    That last verse is so metaphoric with the hints of intense bereavement. I feel your pain. I've been there. Hugs :)

    Hello Sandra! Very poignant. Real emotions are surfacing. I can relate somehow. Hope soon enough you can get off the phase and just look back with a shrug and a smile. Count me as your friend anytime. Christmas love & hugs, Wendy

    Thank you Carrie...sometimes life throws the bitter at you, you just take it in, cry a little, laugh alot and spit it back out in poetry :) Hugs hope you had a great Christmas!

    Tremendous & hard-hitting write. When can a saddened heart become strong enough to turn a frozen December into a blooming May? Depends on how full the "glass"...excellent job!

    It has gotten cold here as well and the snow is starting to come down pretty heavy.

    I don't quite know what to say other than I can feel the emotion of your poem. Christmas has always been a lonely time for me. But the good that comes out of visiting with family and friends and knowing that it is really about the birth of Jesus Christ. Makes it so much better.....Hugs....Roger

    Thank you Roger...i agree it is about the birth of Christ, though it's so commercialized that i think it lost it's true meaning along the way...my family has dwindled down in size quite a bit and things aren't as they once were... just seems each year december likes to bring some new sadness with the cold bite... hugs to you
