Winter warmth

A Peace So Cold It Burns

Outside, the air is chilled

Outside, the air is chilled and frost sprouts from branches

Outside, the air is chilled and frost sprouts from branches and needles.

Leaves hang, curled,

Leaves hang, curled, and yellow,

Leaves hang, curled, and yellow, pale from snow

Leaves hang, curled, and yellow, pale from snow and lack of sun

Leaves hang, curled, and yellow, pale from snow and lack of sun frozen

Leaves hang, curled, and yellow, pale from snow and lack of sun frozen before they had time to fall.

Winter is taken to mean

Winter is taken to mean death

Winter is taken to mean death and dismay.

Forgive them

Forgive them, Jack Frost,

Forgive them, Jack Frost, for they know not what they say.

They know not that winter

They know not that winter is wonder

They know not that winter is wonder and love

They know not that winter is wonder and love and reprieve.

The blinding sparkle of sun against snow,

The blinding sparkle of sun against snow, the wind that smells of cold,

The blinding sparkle of sun against snow, the wind that smells of cold, the soft sting of the sky falling, frozen.

Winter is people finding each other

Winter is people finding each other;

Winter is people finding each other; community.

And when it is too cold to gather amongst the snow

And when it is too cold to gather amongst the snow knit hats over ears and skates over wool socks

And when it is too cold to gather amongst the snow knit hats over ears and skates over wool socks hot chocolate held between warm mittens,

We gather instead around the fire

We gather instead around the fire burning joyfully

We gather instead around the fire burning joyfully the scent of spiced food filling the air

We gather instead around the fire burning joyfully the scent of spiced food filling the air the warmth welcoming for the cold outdoors.

Fire crackles

Fire crackles and sparks fly

Fire crackles and sparks fly and families hug

Fire crackles and sparks fly and families hug and love burns

Fire crackles and sparks fly and families hug and love burns and snow falls

Fire crackles and sparks fly and families hug and love burns and snow falls and the world freezes

Fire crackles and sparks fly and families hug and love burns and snow falls and the world freezes and exhales.
