Read Poem: MURDERESS WINTER, by Paul Amato

It came in cold and just won’t let up.

Each day is painful, both physically and mentally. The body, the mind together reject this terrible winter weather. Winds howl, snow flies, sun hides, sky’s cry.

People bundle, dogs go out do their business run back inside. Joy waits for warmer days. Happiness is lost among the frost. Trees shiver while branches snap. Birds hop hide beneath the spruce nettles, waiting for the sun to warm their feathers. Wild wolves wander on frozen tundra searching for food alive or dead. Lonely souls wait for spring to come alive but only if they can survive this murderess winter.
