The Winter is Near…

The world seems friendly tonight

when cold owns the streets,

I sit near the window sipping the darkness

as black coffee hot in the morning,

cold was the word of the week

coughing and sneezing

my kid turned the nights

into deep seas of fear,

tonight the cold arrived to its end

the world is friendly again

the winter is near.

    A well constructed poem ,on what might be otherwise considered an everyday sort of theme,concisely delivered. I thought “sipping the darkness” and “deep seas of fear”,added an out of the ordinary,unexpected depth to the work. A most welcome first post and share!!!
