Winter Breaks

When this constant chill,

Has finally left my bones,

When nature’s desolation,

Springs itself back to life,

When the dreary tedium,

Is replaced with motion,

When gray dark skies,

Give way to cheerful blue,

When this winter breaks,

All will be well.




About John White

I've written off and on my entire life. It took years for me to finally take putting words together seriously. Now it's not, nor does it ever feel, like work. Writing daily has become habitual. No day is complete without words having appeared on the page.
