Winter tastes like sweet
cherries and peaches. It feels like
wind chilling me even through my
knit sweater. Winter feels
like the warmth that has left
me,just like you did. But,
sometimes I might just see you
or meet you and it feels as if
those rare mornings of sun thawing
the tips of my toes. Winter speaks
of despair, loneliness and cold
yet winter tastes of the sweetness of
cherries and peaches galore.
Winter reminds of the chatteringof
your teeth and the snow on the ground. It looks red and green
but mostly just white all around.
Winter howls and cries and
says greenery goodbye yet
winter still tastes evermore
of sweet cherries and peaches galore.
