Poetry: “Slow change”

Another poem reflecting on changes and the seasons.


Slow change


Sometime in the new year

Barely notice it at first

Within that winter darkness

You just focus to survive


But then you gaze up to the sun

As it struggles to get up

It pulls itself up further

Than it really did last week


And in that golden sunlight

You can feel a growing warmth

That was not there not long ago

But now you bask in that warm light


You know then light is winning

That the winter’s losing hold

Spring is still some time away

But this is a brave first step
