I write what I feel…

Winter’s on its Way

Winter creeps from west to east,

Soundless slippers on its feet,

Borne on the warm west wind

Where I feel traces of chill,

A foretaste of the dense cold air

About to descend blanket-like

Covering us, huddled together

Before the flickering fire.

Friday’s the day, so they say,

And preparations are underway…

I am a middle-aged South African woman, living in Johannesburg. I began writing poetry towards the end of May 2010. I love animals – sometimes more than people!

  1. Lovely poem bringing in the winter.
    Winter has just begun here in Oz, but the temperatures are still too high for a ‘normal’ winter. I’m not complaining though, it’s still better than living in the Northern Hemisphere, hey Denise !
