Winter

“Winter” by Philip Dodson

Winter

Crunch crunch crunch
Across the icy field
Sinking into the soft snow below
The bite of the cruel wind

The sun glints off the crust
The deer sneaks through the forest
The robin’s red breast against the white
The chill of the cold

Yet here we are
Winter is another new beginning
The death that leads to life
Spring will come

Buds will bloom again
For now, enjoy now
The cold is beautiful
The ice is fresh
Winter wow, love it

The story of humans

The human story is a unique story that has been running since the universe created us.

We all get to etch our little piece on the pages. There is no ending and there are billions of authors…it’s a collaboration. We are free to add whatever we like to the tale. We are all conditioned by the narrative that runs on.

I only have one chance. I can, of course, add more every moment and keep updating my piece. However, my time as an author is limited like all of us. One day I’ll be able to add no more and I may think ‘wow!! if only I’d added that part to the story’.

What will I add to the story? What will you contribute?
