Antique Impressions: Winter’s Dirty Secret

Winter’s Dirty Secret stands revealed

Under the slowly warming days.

Trying valiantly to hide her stained knickers

She stubbornly drops another white cover.

With each attempt, the white layers

Become thinner, frail excuses

In the face of an approaching Spring.

Alas, the pale old woman,

She will be shamed into departing…….. eventually.

  2. I like these, but the first is my favourite. There’s an indefiniteness about the picture that makes you dream. Tony

      Thanks. I enjoy those natural abstracts. Take a bit of the environment and frame it without full context and its meaning shifts. 🙂

  3. Now you have made me feel sad for winter and mean because I have been trying my hardest to make her go away (mostly by whining).
    Eventually is the key word here.

      Don’t feel completely guilty. She is a tough old bird and this season she has brought down whole regions and knocked communities to their knees. She probably has a few good hits left to deliver before she departs.,……… eventually. 🙂
