Within his heart his soul so deep She had lost herself, alone to weep For he had left her here, in a cold so vast She could not find her way, no spells could she cast Her cloak blows in silence, through winter mist As she feels still, the lips she had kissed She is […]

“There are places in this world that aren’t made out of stone.” -Shawshank Redemption My eyes flew open. I felt the overwhelming desire to look out my window and see ten inches of snow. Which is weird because it’s summer. When I say it was overwhelming, I mean it. The desire was so strong I […]

  The Snow Man One must have a mind of winter To regard the frost and the boughs Of the pine-trees crusted with snow; And have been cold a long time To behold the junipers shagged with ice, The spruces rough in the distant glitter Of the January sun; and not to think Of any […]

Snow by Loreena McKennit

White are the far-off plains, and white The fading forests grow; The wind dies out along the height, And denser still the snow, A gathering weight on roof and tree, Falls down scarce audibly.

Almost crashed the car Winter can be dangerous Sun was in my eyes

A Season in Hell by Arthur Rimbaud

translated by Bertrand Mathieu A while back, if I remember right, my life was one long party where all hearts were open wide, where all wines kept flowing. One night, I sat Beauty down on my lap.—And I found her galling.—And I roughed her up. I armed myself against justice. I ran away. O witches, […]

Winter in The Heart by Leigh Charles

The blizzards of change are coming Bees and sounds of life have stopped humming Ice swirls its dance spiraling downward Teasingly touching faces Before melting away Just like the heart Melting away Rain splatters down on the pavement Making surface things slippery Just like the heart Rain splatters down panes of glass Running rivulets Like […]
