Day 17 – Winter Welcome

Today’s Prompt: Write a poem of greeting.

Winter Welcome

by Angel Dawson

Winter, I hear you, knocking loud upon my door,

I feel your icy fingers, see your misty sighs…

I greet you with mixed feelings of dread and salutation,

Your cold is uninvited but I love your clear blue skies.

The glow of a lamplit window on a cold and wintry eve

Warms a weary heart with its welcoming sight.

But the ache in my poor fingers from the iciness you bring,

Leaves me wishing you would leave with all of my might.

About One Day Closer To My Dream Life

Hi, I'm Angel, and I'm so glad you stopped by. Although Life took me down another road, since childhood I have loved writing and the power of language to evoke feelings and memories, to communicate with the hundreds of people we come into contact with and build relationships with along the way, and to impart ideas with. It's high time that I reunite with my old pleasure and passion, and start writing down all those words that are rushing around aimlessly in my head, jostling with each other to be heard. Sometimes we most fear doing what we love most in case it doesn't work out as we hope, but sometimes we just need to take that chance regardless! Who knows, maybe those words and plots and characters will take me on a journey that others will get to share with me, and lead me one step closer to living my dream life... I hope so!
