Winter of Discontent

Sad melodrama

Plays to disappointed land

Winter sans ‘jolly’

As frost patterns windowpanes

Peace, unity are lagging


Healing will require

Heaven’s army, top-grade troops

Rage, doubt, fear mooch faith

Once generous, unshaken

Sharp precipice imagined


Junk-mail media

Spews scary information

Educates with slants

Winter’s breath-held discontent

Worthy of literature


Disconsolate hearts

Peer through freezing rains’ dim veil

Encroaching snow clouds

Hem in mind’s isolation…

Soul dreams purple hyacinths

Illusions Betray

Where is the brother

Idolized in younger years

Imagined hero

Was no exception it seems

To illusion which betrays
