Dark December Days

04 Dec


Dark December days

Leeching life’s lustre 

Morphing melancholic moods

Damp drizzle descends
Languid leaves loam

Freezing frosts form

Dreck drizzle drops

Sleet slams skin

Mental motivation missing

Damp decay deforms

Winds whip wildly

Endless echoes emanate 

December drags deeper

    The darkness is the hardest adjustment for me I think. I’m just grateful to have seen the end of those two solid weeks of rain. Sunshine is a need, not a want. Nice alliterations btw. I like the poem. πŸ₯°

    Been thinking about you. Was just about to email when you posted.

    Yours is a very wintry prose; it is palpable. The photo totally supports it. All those moods and feelings pass through, there is only so much rationalisation you can do till early January. What you write is so very true. Thank heavens for electric light to brighten up the long evenings and nights!

    I’m way behind on my usual schedule and am trying hard to motivate myself to get on with things. You must have loads more effort to make; I admire you.

      There’s always more that could be done, lol. I think I am definitely a sunshine person, the darkness drags, like tonight, I made dinner, closed the curtains and it feels like it way past midnight but it’s not even 7pm yet.

      Motivation, I lost that (along with my mind and other unnecessary things) a long time ago. I sometimes read past blog entries from years ago and it feels like a different person wrote them.

        I can understand that; for the very same reason, I try not to look at blogs very, very past…who did they belong to? xxx
