Winter Song


Winter will always take the light.
The birds will go too.

The cold returns.
The leaves abandon the trees.

You live with it.
You survive.

Knowing it doesn’t matter,
you still hold the birds in the
lushness of green.

The magnolias bloom.
Alive in your mind.

-Tosha Michelle

  1. You know, Tosha, your lovely poem here almost makes me long for winter again — say it can’t be so! πŸ™‚ If it wasn’t for the “actual” cold and snow I’d welcome it tomorrow. And Sarah McLachlan — one of my absolute favorites! Saw her last year (maybe the year before?) in concert; 2nd row, I was in heaven. Good choice of music, excellent choice of words! Hope you have a wonderful weekend! And it’s Happy Mother’s Day for you, isn’t it? πŸ™‚
