The chill in the air is symbolic of the underlying fear. The horizon will turn dark earlier than usual. The Sun may become a rare visitor. Who will uphold the truth?
The starkness of branches is a reassurance. It represents the bare truth, shorn of all foliage – frills and fancies. Lack of warmth may prevent flowering of hope and dreams, but not for long.
The roots, trunk and bare branches are the universal truth. Seasons will come and seasons will go. Vision will adjust itself to changing realities around a core of honesty.
winters of the soul
truth will warm pining hearts
dreams inching closer –slowly
to blossom in new seasons
