The Thursday Think Tank # 74 - Winter

As
sunlight
slants weaker
and dark hours grow
long,
winter's
icy curse
freezes lazy
bones
into
dangerous
inaction: sleep
lulls
people
to prisons
of blankets and
beds

  1. Oh yes, I hear you. I like "to prisons of blankets and beds.' One does tend to 'hole up' in winter, and it is easy to allow oneself to be imprisoned.

  6. I too like winter this way! At least half of me does. The other half wants to get out and enjoy the snow and Christmas displays :). The ending was really great even though I am imprisoned willingly :)
