Winter Sun

Hi Everyone,

This weeks blog is a nice short poem from 2009. ๐Ÿ™‚ Yes I’m still archiving. ๐Ÿ™‚ I hopeย some of you will enjoy the poem.

Wishing you all a pleasant week ahead.


Winter Sun

There were mornings once.
cold with winters’ fog and frost.

We’d throw open the blinds to let in
the winter sun.

In the dampened light you would sit with me.
I played let’s be famous.
Singing my heart out again.

You would perch by my side.
In a land of dreams all your own.
How would you trap a rabbit like that again!?

At some point we’d stop.
My voice silent and your eyes closed.

Just sitting together.
Fog evaporated and we were unaware.

Curled against each others frame.
Hazed light forgets the cold.

Comfortable in our respective silences.
We didn’t need language
In the winter sun.

  1. This is a beautiful poem, and a truly beautiful picture.

    This evoked such a feeling of contentment in me, to be in that place together where comfortable silence just enhances the love between two people. It can bring to the surface emotions which cannot be verbalised, I think. And being able, also, to wander into one’s own world for a little while, yet still be present.

    And the depiction of the cold winter outside in contrast to the comfort and warmth within.

    Mmmm – lovely!

    1. Hi Chrisitne,

      Thank you for reading and for your most lovely response. I’m really glad you liked the photo and felt so much from the poem.

      I think whether friends or lovers that place where you can sit without needing to make conversation is a very spaecial place two people create together in their relationship with one another. I do very much agree with what you felt in reading this poem.

      The warmth of company and surrounds in winter is certainly the highlight of the season for me.

      Thank you very much again.

  2. Hi Tikarma,

    Lovely poem. I could remember those days well. They’re long gone now.

    I love the picture.

    I hope you’re having a great week.


    1. Hi Diana,

      Thank you. I’m really glad you liked the photo and poem.

      This poem too is very much the past. The individual it is written about has since passed away.
      Those places of companionship are very special and sometimes hard to hold onto. For me memories bring hope. If I had it once I will have it again. ๐Ÿ™‚ Then again I’m an eternal optimist ๐Ÿ™‚

      My week is starting out with my usual brand of chaos but should calm down by tomorrow. Mondays for me are always a bit wacky.
      I hope your week starts well and continues into a very good week for you.

  3. Hi Tikarma,

    This poem moved me almost to tears. So I sat with it a while, just staring at the photograph – allowed myself to absorb your words.

    There is something very special about a place where two people can co-exist in mutual support without any need for words.

    1. Hi David,

      (((hugs))), Thank you very much for your most moving response.
      I’m glad you were able to sit with the photo for a time and allow yourself a place to take in the feelings this poem brought up.

      It is indeed a very special place that space where you are in harmoy with another without needing conversation. The presence of each other is enough to bring comfort, or comapnionship.
      They are certainly moments I treasure.

      Again Thank you, and I hope your week will be a good one for you, full of beauitful Autumn colours. ๐Ÿ™‚

      and K’sOTC. ๐Ÿ˜€

    1. Hi Jamie,

      Thank you very much for your lovely response. I’m very glad that this poem brings you so much warmth and a sense of peace.
      It’s nice to have pieces that bring back happy memories. ๐Ÿ™‚

      Thanks again for reading and for all your support.

      Yours always in love

  5. Beautiful poem,- with so much warmth!

    It’s what we most wish for with people where it so rarely happens,

    but to me these are memories of Jacob …sitting here with Karley knowing this “tuned in to each other” so well, – not having a common language in words but at the same time not needing any, – I think it’s what makes our connection so special.

    It proves the point, that a poem is what we read in it, and that’s great ! ๐Ÿ™‚

    wishing you a good week – and your archiving to keep going well,

    Love + ๐Ÿ™‚
    lots of hugs,
    mum & Karley xox

    1. Hi Mum,

      Thankyou very much for your most lovely response. I’m really glad you enjoyed the poem.

      Yes the readers viewpoint is the most important. I’ve learnt that like a painting my job is over once the piece is finished then it’s up to the viewer/reader to determine what it is for them.

      I do agree Jacob and myself and yourself and Karley have a very special companionship. I suppose when you build on a bond and share your life the relationship of friendship is just as valid as when it is with another person.The common language of companship can certainly say more than words at times. ๐Ÿ™‚
      We underestimate the value of a furry friend sometimes I think. ๐Ÿ™‚

      This poem remains a favourite for that reason it can be taken so many ways ; lover, friend, furry friend. It really is what it means to you. ๐Ÿ™‚

      Thank you very much again.
      I hope your week ends well.
      The relationship archive is almost finished! Then four more archives to go *faints* but it’s getting there, one poem at a time.

      With much love and
      PATS fot Karley
      ((((BIG HUGS))) to you
