Winter's Touch




Cold gales of winter whisper through the night,
‘Cross the city, newly gilded with light.
Through streets of no shame, past stop lights of yore,
Where love was confessed two summers ago.
By houses of laughter, love and of song...
Beneath barren trees which mimic my wrong.
They echo the empty which blows through my heart,
Stripped bare to the core, awaiting new start.
With moon beams agaze, down on black tar...
An old lonely young man still must go far.
The journey's just started; path is still rough.
Just keep the wheels spinning and hope it's enough.
For as the winter's breeze blankets the town,
He knows in his soul life can't keep him down.

I do love the imagery and presentation of this piece my friend. I am also glad for its upbeat tone.

Chris: I love the line "An old lonely young man still must go far."...

Chris this was beautiful. I loved it. This is my favorite of yours I think! This is the line I liked the most..."They echo the empty which blows through my heart"

Though I loved the rest of them too! Excellent bud!!!!

tomorrow just a mystery.
And if today is good to me,
it will beat the heck out of day before yesterday!

Great to see the optimism there, Christopher. It may not be an oncoming train.

Ah gees trollboy, I read this over again, trying to pick my favorite lines, and I just might as well type the whole poem here for you...for I loved every line...I could really hear the echo from within you in this....very very moving, and I do believe I have frostbite now on my fingers!! That's how darn cool it was! ***clapping furiously!

Thank you friends for the kind words. As Scott says, I am "getting my poetic feet wet again." I appreciate the support!

Wonderful work, my friend. There's plenty of reasons I can think of not to let this life hold you down either.
