Hoping for the Sun

by Jessie   Nov 24, 2010

Beautiful, white, powder dancing on life
cold, wet, disguised unhappiness

remembering days lost long ago
I remember the beaches,
that internal feeling
that brought pure joy

days gone by, swing sets and slides
rays that shone like an answer from the heavens
warmth that spills from your insides
hands held for the first time

experiencing life, exciting and new
virgin adventures to roam
freedom was the key
ecstasy was serene

the sound of waves crashing
laying on the sand, background noise
to be out at four am at fourteen
to feel rebellious, owning the world

life was sublime,
met pure love,
only to have snow take it away
days are long without you

life is cold, December snow
all alone, best enemy is pain
memories of summer haunt the soul
while I sit hoping for the sun

    Image rich,
    (wonderfully evocative of my own life..;-)..
    your theme choice and delivery brings you into
    supremely good company..

    Consider The Following:

    How like a winter hath my absence been
    From thee, the pleasure of the fleeting year!
    What freezings have I felt, what dark days seen!
    What old December's bareness every where!
    And yet this time removed was summer's time,
    The teeming autumn, big with rich increase,
    Bearing the wanton burden of the prime,
    Like widow'd wombs after their lords' decease:
    Yet this abundant issue seem'd to me
    But hope of orphans and unfather'd fruit;
    For summer and his pleasures wait on thee,
    And, thou away, the very birds are mute;
    Or, if they sing, 'tis with so dull a cheer
    That leaves look pale, dreading the winter's near.

    -William Shakespeare
    Sonnet 97

    You fooled me at first with your opening line, but I think it led into a great poem that spoke about the dreariness that can come for some of us with winter. I think you could look at this in many different ways. I know I completely related to it. An enjoyable read, thank you for sharing it. Good work.
