Her

Who? The girl from
this winter? She comes
blowing in and out,
as she’s wont to do.
I’ve seen her when
there’s a chill in the air,
or when it gets dark
before she expects it to.
I see her. Don’t you?



This week the gargleblaster asks, "Do you see her much?"

  3. I like how you ended this with a question. Thankfully, winter has been mild for us, so I haven't seen (much) of her!

  8. Nice - there's definitely a fantastical feel to this. The girl you describe feels like a creature out of northern mythology. Very cool. (Ha! No pun intended.) Thanks for linking up your gargleblaster!
