As much the weather is cold today

So are the people too

How should one embrace warmth

By getting married, may be

To whom?

Not to the idea of a loving man ;

But to the very process of

Deeply observing

the abrupt changes in nature

If it's a cold weather today

By no means possible,

The wind remains forever unkind

Summers are ahead,

So, may be, for now

Hibernate, hide, and grow dormant

Until spring blooms

Who knows, may be, by then

Some one will

Present to you

Bouquet of red roses

And what if

Summer blesses you

with the warmth you seek

Would you still remember

The cold people and days?

I love your poem and personally I focus on the bouquet of red roses and accept the cold people as they are.

Hello Rakshinda,
It's hot where I am, and I hope that you make yourself some home-brewed tea, rug up and make some warmth. It is an important question you pose though, how we forget or ignore those in need when our needs are met.

Where there is hope,
there is life, where there is life, there is love!

Hi RakShinda,
Beautiful poem and reflective on life's low and high moments
represented by the cold and warm! I love it.

It is very cold here in Canada right now, and I cannot wait for the summer to bless me with warm!

When the summer comes in your life in whatever form, I would encourage you to enjoy the warmth, of course, our minds have a tendency, to wander to the cold people and events, but direct your mind back to the warm and do not allow the cold to spoil your pleasure. All the best to you.
