Winter does a thing to you, makes a thing of you,
shells you from the worldly smells and pulls you under
heavy blankets of dark and snow.

Nothing is as real
as the dreams you cut your sun-shaped holes in
when the light is out.

Let's sleep together, everyone.
By the fire, by moon.
Let's sleep together.

And THAT is why winter is my favorite time of year!

I like this particularly. Think I'll print it an' stick it above my desk and when I'm in need of distraction from work I'll glance over an' re-read it 'til I know it without peeking.

Well, this is kind-of haunting, but very interesting. I love how short and "sweet" it is. Excellent work!

Thank you, I prefer my poetry to be rather short and terse and my articles to be so long and sprawling that my editor goes insane :)

I've been thinking a lot lately about this same thing, but haven't been able to express it. Thanks.
