My breath clings to the air
A thick fog of condensation in the cold.
Snaps and crackles beneath my feet
Warn me of the ice below.
A deep shiver runs across my body
As a gust of freezing wind burns my face and lungs.
The sun feels so close today.
Its golden, pink, and orange hues oozing into the horizon.
The sky, nature's biggest jester.
It looks as though I could touch it, drink in its warmth.
I imagine it will look the same
As the little green buds start to form.
So incredibly close, yet ever-escaping.
How I long for the mild breeze of Spring!
The winter has taken me hostage,
Freezing all I love dear, keeping me trapped inside...
Just for a bit of warmth.
