Today’s prompt: Write a ‘winter’ poem.
Thawing of a Winter Heart
Walking home in dark winter’s night
I find comfort in the festive glow
Of those guardian fairy-lights
That burn a path through the snow.
It warms a near-frozen heart
Weathered and cold from a trying year
And kindles the flame of a new start
That melts piling worries and fears.
The seasonal songs and jingles
Can’t help but force a slight smile,
As in my feet I feel a sharp tingle
That I have not known for a while.
All these lights and lively streets
Remind me of those simple things
That keep us hopeful and upbeat
And ready for whatever warmer months bring.
