Gratitude breaks the spell of Writers Block
Istijlál (Majesty), 12 Sulṭán (Sovereignty) 176 B.E. - Thursday, January 30, 2020
On cold winter nights
a chill penetrates my bones
arousing thoughts of spring.
In the sleepless cold
snuggling under warm blankets
I miss spring's pleasant embrace.
Winter is lonely
flowerless gardens, dead grass,
and leafless trees.
