Winter

The rain beats down
Against the deceptively delicate glass
Windows rattle
To the incessant battle
Winter’s war between the elements
Sometimes sleet comes
To drive the last cobwebs from the corners
The wind snatches
Breath catches
Winter’s tale is too cold and dark for me
But inside I’m safe
Warm and protected from the howling Charybdis
Knowing you’re here
I’ve nothing to fear
Your embrace keeps me away from the winter’s roar
