Winter

Aiste Saulyte Photography / Portrait Session / Emine /  Slow living. Spring. Connecting to Nature. Female Beauty. Natural, Holistic Beauty.
Quietly, winter sets in
like a bride so pure,
a porcelain teapot full of warmth,
a dandelion brushing against the skin.
The kitchen lights shine on my bare skin,
producing a glimmer of my mind.
The grass is cut short. Precise and anorexic.
The air is not the same anymore.
Bulbs of sophisticated figments produce jasmine in cold.

There is no other way for us to gulp a wound here,
the pain may be stuck like a pendulum inside.
Winter germinates other chills in mind, often
into me, an evening of inked breath.

The fission of music
getting stuck to my earlobes,
a song,
a pyre,
an abortion,
a mishappening
all shapeshifting instabilities of life.
Cherry Blossoms
of ordinary life, it is.
Ankle length Winter- skirts swaying across the room
ingesting
everything at once.


P.S – Sorry for my disappearance also I am currently not at all in a writing sphere, exactly. Please let me know what did you all feel reading this one.:)

  1. I can feel . . . tell that there’s some sort of struggle. Your words convey that. I connected with them. Peace, Devika. Here’s hoping your mind will clear just a bit soon.

  2. I truly felt amazed at the beauty of your words, reading after a long time. This poem has a simplicity to it that still goes deep. I have not been posting too lately but this feels such happiness to come back and visit.
