Hibernating

The winter snow told me to relax,

things will work out,

just give it time.

And if it’s not okay,

have a cup of tea

and a warm blanket.

Spring will be here

and you’ll be good again.

Winters are for hibernating,

growing and healing.

But then why,

I ask myself,

do I always break down

when winter comes around?

    Love that first line. Winter as an invitation to relax. I’m with you, though – it just pronounces my angst. Working on it.

      Thank you! I go back and forth on loving and hating winter. I love how peaceful the snow and everything is, but I can’t stand the cold.

    Maybe it’s the hibernation that’s depressing…

      It would be nice if we could literally hibernate. I would love that. I would live it even if it were just for like 2 or 3 weeks lol

    Been in such a lost and churned-up place for the longest time…
    and just as it looks like I might be coming through it, a big part of me feels like I’ve been led into a trap somehow.
    So with the winter winds blasting outside, I suddenly found myself struggling again.
    Some days, knowing you’ve found a new path is healing.
    Some days, taking hibernation time, whatever else is going on around you, is healing.
    Today, I just had tears, and the hope of a listening ear –
    but some days, even tears are healing enough.

    The snow lied: winter is brutal. There’s little daylight, it’s cold, and there’s little time to rest. Also, it’s cold.

    That said, your poem is good and well-written!

  6. There will never be something like writing too much, or loving too much, feeling too much, dancing too much. Thanks for sharing your poetry,
