Monday Haiku….the beckoning call

the beckoning call
.
.
.
.
Winter’s icy voice,
.
.
an apathetic hiss through
.
.
gangways and alleys,
.
.
.
.
the callous slicing
.
.
across streets and tender skin.
.
.
there’s no reprieve in
.
.
.
.
this frigid metropolis,
.
.
stripped naked when ice winds sneak,
.
.
under window sills…
.
.
.
.
through mortar and psyche…
.
.
stirring the blackened mold of
.
.
toxic memories.
.
.
.
.
it’s the helplessness
.
.
against this relentless howl…
.
.
the beckoning call
.
.
.
.
of the white season…
.
.
the rerun of fatal fears..
.
.
of hibernation…
.
.
.
.
i dream of the womb,
.
.
in amniotic innocence
.
.
pregnant with Hope.
.
.
.
.
i believe in Hope,
.
.
I believe in Redemption
.
.
and in Renewal.
.
.
.
.
to erase my eyes
.
.
of each cruelty i’ve seen,
.
.
.

and sleep… until Spring.

  10. Hi! I’ve nominated you for the “Blog Of The Year” Award! Congrats!

    Follow this link: http://painttheworldwithwords.wordpress.com/?p=714

    • painttheworldwithwords…in the past i have accepted awards with a smile, and half
      the fun in getting an award, at least for me was giving them, but the last 2 times
      i was nominated i found no one to give the award to. i seem to travel in β€˜Award Free’
      blog circles, i guess.

      but ty very kindly for thinking of me!

    Winter has a magical touch
    Snow fall urges hands to feel
    the cold and numbness, that is real
    we cover , we shiver, we attempt to deal
    winter is magical..like a fairy on wheels πŸ™‚

    Will not hibernate
    will not miss..this light silvery kiss
    snow covers..where grass has died
    winter has come to bring an end
    to cycle of life..for a new beginning

    Trees are bare and we tend to share
    warmth of heart..we sing we care
    sun when glares..we tend to stare
    at the chilling breeze..no one can see
    just feel…it is real

      • E.D. says:

Most of my photos are of France, some of India, yet to post.. Hope to take more in London this Xmas.. thanks eve.. p.s. have a blessed Christmas.. eve

      • i’m glad to hear you might be posting more, you have a very discerning eye.
        is there a reason your blog doesn’t accept comments, E.D.
