Chills and thrills


four seasons
we know em all
i was yet to see
what Winter felt like

living here in this warm land
i knew not what it was
to feel cold
to put on mittens and gloves

knew not what it was
to wear sweaters
to cuddle up in front of the fire....

.........
.........

and then it happened
was beautiful
little drops of ice
sitting pretty on the fence

sun,taking a peek
clouds, bright and white
cool air flowing through my hair
ah,i now knew it
i knew what winter was.

wish i could take you back
lock you up in a box
hide you in my closet
for me to savor everyday...

What a great idea, if only we could put the different seasons in a box and bring them out when we wanted to!
Lucky you! - living in a warm place, it's freezing here.

it's not that great when you live with it...hehe
lots of snow here but unfortunately, no fireplace except a fake pillow one my mom made one year for a Christmas present. My youngest is convinced it turns into a real fireplace for Santa to get through...lol
I love the ice part, its so beautiful!

I lived in Malawi for two years and couldn't get used to the heat - we pinned up snow scenes on the walls to remind ourselves of winter!

Hi Aarti, I had a friend visiting from Delhi who had been born and raised in Kashmir. I took him for a ride into the winter mountains of WA state, and we stopped at a ski area. He hadn't seen snow in 15 years and he stood outside the car weeping. I then took him to a little eastern WA town by the name of Cashmere, and its hills and orchards took him home again. Thanks for your poem, it reminded me...

I've always live with snow and I think that I never want to be without that change in the season, where cold bites your nose. What a charming poem to let us know what the difference. Thank you!

I, too, came from a warm country, the Philippines and I easily connect to your sentiments of wishing for snow and dreaming of winter. Here's how my first snow happened, click link below:

Loved your poetry, I would rather have spring or autumn in a box though, winter is a no-no. :) I can stand it for a day, no more!Welcome to WI,
