‘Winter’ – we are in the middle of it, so a good one for us in South Australia. So many mixed feelings about what this season brings. What is it for you? Or is it even about your sentiment about the season?
With the forces of nature that unleash themselves, what stands out?
Hope you enjoy the expressions this week.
Feel free to join in with this unique poetic expression approach we journey through each week. It’s more than the word, it’s where it leads us, it’s what arrives, it’s a gateway to what lies within, a time to share and feel free.
Feel free to pass this on, comment below, or join in each week.
The next word is ‘foreign.
Hope to see you there.
Warm and Fuzzy
Warm and fuzzy Can you find it in every day? I challenge you If you really pay attention and live in the moment They are everywhere
A winter day, sunlight shining on the floor And also warming up my heart Outside, I hear di da di da raindrops, And I am at home What a cozy safe feeling
Putting my shoes on and open the door A beautiful rainbow hanging in the sky When I am jogging, I see A cute little husky Tail waves, running toward meWalk along the footpath Gazing at the street art What a colourful world to paint I see some yellow daisies Matching my new earrings So many moments to collect Because warm and fuzzy are everywhere

What to do today… So cold and bleak, lets have a think Clear the table, monopoly out The family ready to yell and shout Eager for prime real estate, Come on mum, can’t be late! Round and round the board we go Fun and laughter as the money flows Oh look, mum has made a snack Now where did she find the time to do that!
Looking out at the rain and wind A bitter winter’s day is here Have bought Scamp in from out the back Can’t be left out in the cold, He curls up snug by the fire With a look of gratitude to admire We are more fortunate than many So making the most of the winter months Together

I am winter
Harsh and clearing Cleansing and cold Isolating and fearing Some would say I’m bold
Don’t try and mess with me In time you will see I am and I do what the earth Requires of me
There is always a reason For what I bring Most are in battle with it Because I can really sting
There is snow And some of you glow as you feel the pleasure of this type of weather
And for the creatures below snow stops moisture from letting go It helps keep them warm and prevents ice to form
And then there’s the rain When there is no refrain it causes so much dismay The only thing to do is pray!
And wind and storms too the ice gets right through Not the time to be outside Feel sad for those who cannot hide
Yet I am needed I’m sure you can see to get those leaves off the trees To make the space for the warmth to be embraced
Not a problem if you’re in a cosy home Very different though if you’re left outside to roam
So while I can feel quite harsh at times I help the whole ecology survive
I help keep the cycles alive Born, flourish, shed and die
I am big emotions I shed the tears For the pain that comes and goes Over the years
My intentions are good I just need to be understood
