The temperature drops as night descends
cold’s breath bringing clouds of white
as Winter’s icy touch slowly extends
the land’s transformed to a ghostly sight
No sound dare breaks the stony silence
as if the world lies deep in sleep
nothing moves in Winter’s presence
as she walks around her keep
Her ephemeral grace glows like starlight
captured upon icicles’ crystal sheen
they glisten like diamonds in twilight
showing paths where Winter has been
And on her hair snowflakes alight
a translucent veil clouds her smile
shimmering beauty clothed in white
Winter is here to stay awhile

I burn under your steady gaze
that lingers even when clouds block your sight.
The heat that permeates singes skin
browning surface in just minutes.
I cannot move, there is no place to hide,
should I ask for blessed shade to come?
Or embrace the warmth that seeps
breathing life to this cold soul
left by night’s chilling kiss?

One sunny day, I decided to take photos of my mom and dad’s bougainvilleas outside our home. Since I don’t want to get roasted under the baking sun, I used the thick foliage of the bougainvilleas to hide from the sun’s rays. It was fun because I took the opportunity to snap a few pictures using my camera phone and here they are. 🙂
Hiding from the sun.

Space among the flowers
Blinded by the Sun
Flowers in bloom
Surrounded by Pink
