A Shower of Winter Light

January is a dreary monotone

Nighttime air is clear and cold

The moon ascends its winter throne

Lunar magnification is many fold

When the distant sun cracks through

The frigid air quickly ensnares the heat

Teasing, we’re offered a spring preview

This glimpse quickens a shivering heartbeat

Ricocheting sunlit showers abound

Disintegrating icicles drip their brilliance

Icy puddles amass across the ground

To be frozen again by the night’s resilience

Winter is a disappointingly callous lover

Stolen minutes of daylight rolled back

Overstaying and leaving us to recover

Joyous moods fade from cheerful to black
