Winter

Winter is so long 
So cold
So very lonely 

Oaks winter undressed limbs
Stretch into the bone chilling darkness
Seeking as if to be clothed

She is the embodiment of my sorrow
The bleakness of my empty heart
Like Oak I too am barren 

Under this moonlit night
Oaks silent limbs silhouette like a widow in black lace 
Entwined in the grey mist rising from the lake 

It looks like a backdrop for a spooky movie set
I almost expect the lone ominous black cape-hooded rider
To emerge through the haze with its scythe 

It was near here we often sat - in the sunshine 
Throwing bread crumbs to the ducks
We laughed and kissed under Oaks green canopy 

Serenaded by bird song
We were the embodiment of oneness 
Words couldn’t express
We just knew words were not necessary

We fulfilled each other
There was no want
No need
Except - to continue 

We embraced the setting sun knowing 
The sun rose everyday-

But now
Just an eerie silent grey mist rising 
A stark reminder
Of the absence of your sunshine 
Your warmth- your comfort

I wait solemnly- 
Longing for spring-
For summer-
