A Bitter Cold

Bitter cold suffocates us
sucking out breath with its talons,
ripping at throats of those fools
who dare to venture outside.
While a dastardly wind blows,
trees bend in supplication
whispering to the night wind
for relief from shattering limbs.
Snow levels rise enveloping
sheltering boughs of confers
planted for the avian creatures
naked legs, shivering in the cold.
Christmas lights twinkle in the wind
providing little warmth to wayward souls
only to those brave enough who peek 
from tightly closed drapes drawn to colour. 


  1. This was a chilly one, but well expressed. Stay warm!

  2. Just like the temp SaFire, bbrrrrr

  3. Well said! It's lovely today. Only 20cm of snow.

    I'm not sure this is the same loon. How does one know??!!
    They found it in a field, so it might have been hurt flying. Hard to say!
    Thanks for visiting!

  4. Time to get me arse outside and shovel the white shite to the bird feeder. They need food more than me. .


Don't be shy. I know you've popped by :)
