Say goodbye …

Chilling winds sneak up to their bones,
bare bodies seeking comfort,
within the shrunken body frame
of bones just lightly draped with skin.
A little flicker of amber from the ashes,
and they run,
they rush to seek some dying heat.
I enjoy the cold in warm confines,
confines of my home and my quilt.
From the window of my vehicle,
when I see them seeking shelter,
trying to put up a brave front,
in front of shivering kids in rags,
I wish.
I make a wish to my beloved winter,
Winters, now please say goodbye.
