Winterish Morning

I lay abed
lazing not wanting to get up
to another day…
slow,
lost, my enthusiasm
nearly completely blocked,
words that came easily
now hide
in folds of cotton wool
that would be my mind…

dark are the days
though the sun shines bright
yet it’s cold
and problems daily mount
seeping my energy…
by 5 ‘clock
it’s night

laying in my bed
words swirled
wanting to be written:
of apathy
that would be
my creativity!
oh, silly muse
you’d have me write anything!
I don’t want to wake-up
to another day
of issues to be solved…

tomorrow
the Christmas Market opens
two weeks earlier this year…
it seems that,
I’m not the only one,
weighed down by early winterish blues.
our mayor
will open the fair
earlier…
creating a festive air
with vin brulé and chestnuts roasting

little houses decorated
in shining tinsel
red ribbons, green sprigs of spruce
twinkling lights
and carols blaring
from speakers mounted
throughout the town.

artificial joy
in a world
still weighed down
by the uncertainty
of crisis.

I’ll walk down tomorrow
with my camera
and rekindle
my spark of life.
