The Season Inside

Its beauty yet again plunders me, 
Into magnificent realms that hide
Deep within my every thought
Where I ,like a new tenant, 
Seek comfort to reside
In the warm abodes of Winter.

It has come yet again
With its white painted sky
Like a dripping white towel
Whose waters slowly subside
Like a pain that has been eluded,
Avoided, denied

Its gusts that blow across 
The many prolonging miles 
Bringing all windows to shudder
Like lost whispers and voices
Found and compiled
Into a vague resonance.

Its unmelted snow
That at every corner lies
Lingering for the tepid
Sun of Spring to rise 
To melt away
Like an unwanted memory.

And all that it holds
Is but a fraction that glides
A sheer reflection of the world 
The snow, wind and rain of
The season inside

    Farah, this is absolutely beautiful. The rhythm gives it an almost sad fluidity, and the imagery beautifully portrays the oftentimes tumultuous but beautiful depth of human emotion. Favorite line: "In the warm abodes of Winter" Very, very well done. God bless. ~Mahmood

    Wow, I like your perspective on winter, Farah! It seems as though you enjoy the cold weather as much as I do and you describe the feelings that accompany the seasons so well. Indeed, it is a "season inside" that is reflected in your words. Can't wait to head North and join you in the "warm abodes of Winter." Excellent writing! Love, Carolyn

    Farah, nobody does landscapes like you ... they are like existential metaphors, and exalt you poems to a readers delight.

    Great write in this one. I love the metaphoric use in comparing winter to the emotions of the heart. Keep the magical and creative pen flowing. Sara
