Winter’s Soul
Another winter approaches yet again,
Stark, bleak, cold and mundane,
Summer skies resting till spring,
Hibernating whilst cold times are lingering,
Rain, frosts and snow a lurking,
Waiting for end year merging,
Resting till autumn declines,
Her hold upon crumbling time,
Season approaches gently at first,
Biding time before delivering the curse,
Teasing us with mere drifters,
Snowflakes tenderly whispering,
Grey skies tinged with pink,
Laughter above awarding us the wink!
Winter’s days like these have been,
Before, prickling upon our warmed skin,
Sad but bitterly cold breeze,
Knowingly aware and ill at ease,
Warning us of the late night silence,
And awaking to whitened ground menace,
Blankets of freezing nature lie in wait,
Fresh dawn unspoiled snow always great!
But only for those still warm within,
Unlike others who must trudge this sin,
Feeling the sharpest of pulls upon the chest,
Warm air escaping out through our breath!
Intakes of the coldest ice sprinkles,
Turning insides to easy snap brittle,
Am not fond of mothers’ harsh control,
Upon my weary and tired soul,
With spring we see her warming smile,
Summer, she displays her sense of guile,
Autumn, we know she is far from tiring,
But it is winter she is most admiring!
For she is in her best of elements now,
Wanting us to see all she truly can bestow!

Today’s Question

Do you have any really annoying habits that even annoy you, and if so what are they?
Yes – well l have many but one that really irks me is l have a tendency to hand pluck my eyebrows when l am deep in thought. I don’t even know l am doing it until l am standing in front of a] a mirror or b] a person and it is then l notice it and think OMG!! Or the person notices it and just looks at the one eyebrowed man in front of them oddly!

Anyway that’s me, what about you?
Let me know below.

    1. Morning Sadje -Well the truth is we can all change our habits – it’s usually whether we want to and we stick to it and introduce newer modified habits.

      I have changed many habits of long standing in the last six months alone and yet having said that – l still subconsciously pluck my eyebrows when thinking hahaha and look in the mirror and shout ‘shit again muppet!’ to me hahaha 🙂

      1. Yes, something’s have become a part of our subconscious personality and are hard to change. I guess I want to be in control and that’s why I plan ahead. Even for others which is not pleasing.

      2. Yes l understand that all too well – Suze is very much the same, or l should say was. The cancer put a hold on her need to be in control, l guess because so much was taken away from her and out of her control.

        She still has this need for it and l think to a certain degree we all do, control is stability and knowing where we stand 🙂

  1. I have a scalp dermatitis that requires a medical shampoo. Without thinking, I scratch at my head causing more problems. Happily, back here at home, I can use my medicated shampoo, which helps a lot.
