there is a day in winter every year

that is the coldest, bleakest day we've seen

we greet the day like any other, yet --

some months after the sun's withheld her face

for the longest time, as if she too is tired

and earth has gradually gotten colder

what leaves remain are crispy with the frosts

the mud freezes and the sky is wet

-- at some point, without us even knowing,

we have survived the coldest day of the year

and things will start to ease and warm again

daily, even if only by a little.

#january #winter

and one of my favourite songs about the cold...
