Winter’s Coming


Speckles of magic

Leaves flushing with fall’s embrace

Engaging pigments

Dancing towards winter’s chill

Prophetic ending certain

    “Prophetic ending certain” is exactly what I’m afraid of – lovely poem, though.

      Thank-you, Vashti. The thought of winter always puts me on edge. We’ve had some really dramatic ones here. I’m lucky that I don’t have to drive to work anymore. I remember going at a snail’s pace around a corner once and still lost control, with freezing rain on top of snow. Almost ditched my car. I have many stories of close calls on the highway. That’s probably where the eerie feeling comes in.

        I understand. I was born and raised in NYC and I remember the snow and those frozen roads. My siblings and I almost got into a bad accident with my mom behind the wheel. A car stopped short in front of her and she turned the wheel to prevent hitting it and our car went for a spin and we crashed into the steps of a brownstone. Luckily, none of us were seriously hurt but it was a terrifying experience. For a long time after I was afraid to be in the car with my mom. I also remember seeing people fall on the icy sidewalk while on my way to school. I’m glad I live in south Florida and never had to drive in the ice and snow.
