In Deep Winter

In deep winter, 
in the heart of cold,
his days are met 
with endless snow 
resembling nothing 
so much as waves, 
white as salt,
banked against
the walls of his house,
above window sills,
sealing doors,
denying escape.

He lost count 
of the buried days,
so come the thawing,
the regaining of his lonely mind,
anywhere but here called,
whispering escape.

    A very nice poem about Winter. I like the snow in the winter time. we have to learn to enjoy each Season, because each one has it's own beauty. Thanks for sharing. Lucilla

    Thanks. Fortunately, I live where winter is short and mild. My son though lives in NYC where it's snowing today. The poem seemed timely.
