Time and the Winter

Leaves are lost in the wind
that complains all the night

Today I walked, bartered space with others on the street
apart, always to be apart now
then, tired of it all, came home to play with words

Winter prepares to enter bodies
it may have already entered my heart

  1. There’s a wolf-like aspect to this winter, cornering us alone … Here in Florida USA it’s a different sort of separation, one you know there should be though there’s almost not evidence of it. The invisible swarming between us. – Brendan

    1. Oh, in our little place, mostly we smile and move around each other fairly happily. There are those who march straight at you, but you can see they are upset. But the virus has mutated to more virulence and we are all now chilled with dread.
