Season Out Of Sync

Closing out the year

Another cycle ends

Weather juxtaposed

Last year’s snow

Winter’s dread

Seasons pay no heed to dates

Carving up the calendar

Each claiming their own stake

Perhaps a ghost, only visiting.

A mystery then. Quiet beauty and inner worlds.

She, lost in thought

I, lost in her.

Was it nothing?

A miscommunication?

Curiosity, or just simple fascination?

I can’t be sure.

A sense of words unspoken.

Burdened with the weight of years.
