Snow Within Us? #Thaw

Snow within us

It may have snowed last night
But I would walk out to meet you
The pebbly path may be slippery
But I can find the footholds to reach you

My snow boots may be old
But they would carry me along
It may be warm here
But I can carry it in my sedulous song

Your heart may be cold
But I would ignite it with the fire
That burns bright within us
The flames that you always admire

The sun may be hidden
But it would shine brighter to thaw
The coldness in and out
Our love can never withdraw

Never at the threat of intruders
Who try to alienate ardent lovers
Who try to accentuate acrimony
In the name of cultural covers.

  1. Loved this Balroop… And those words certainly warmed my heart..
    The snow all melted in the UK.. πŸ™‚
    Sending lots of Love what ever the weather.. πŸ™‚
    And well wishes for a beautiful Christmas..
    And thank you for your kind support over at Dreamwalker’s Balroop, your presence is always appreciated xxx ❀ Hugs Sue xx

    1. Thank you Sue…we don’t get any snow in this part of the world. I guess it seems glamorous only in thoughts and dreams! Love and best wishes back to you too dear friend. Have a wonderful Christmas and happy holidays.

  2. Wow! πŸ˜€ Balroop, your poems always take us on a road of wisdom and discovery … from the gentle precarious steps in the snow to lovers lost, seeking, finding … to the cultural variances in our society and the sad dissent and more. Wonderful and always a joy to read your work. Hugs, my friend. πŸ˜€β€οΈ

    1. Thank you Annika for such an analytic observation! Snow has always evoked romantic feelings and that is what I was trying to capture but how it veered away from my thoughts to absorb cultural tones surprised me too! I am glad it took that shape. πŸ™‚ Love your reflections dear friend. πŸ™‚

  3. What a powerful love poem as well as commentary on the divisiveness that tries to keep love apart. Wonderful response to the prompt, Balroop. I enjoyed it. Happy Holidays.

  4. What a joy to read this poem Balroop. Starting so innocently with the walk in the snow which
    really is the start of all you would do to preserve a love that is meant to survive, to live.
    I love all but these lines are very meaningful both personally and socially.:
    “Who try to accentuate acrimony
    In the name of cultural covers.”

    You also with strength say: “our love can never withdraw”. Beautiful.

    1. It was supposed to be very light-hearted as I didn’t have any special thoughts except love that gets warmer with snow…slowly words slipped out of my hands to form their own edifice…I had to let them and watch in amazement how certain pieces form themselves…snow is the obvious factor that can capture and let go. πŸ™‚
      Many thanks dear Miriam for your beautiful reflections.

  5. You are positively tenacious and tenaciously positive, Balroop. I so admire that in you. This poem also speaks your kind and forgiving heart. How fortunate I am to have you as a friend ❀

  6. Gorgeous photo and post, Balroop! My favorite lines were these:
    I would ignite it with the fire
    That burns bright within us
    The flames that you always admire.

    C’est magnifique! πŸ™‚

  7. Such a beautiful expression of love, and yes, snow is romantic, but it is cold, too. Just as love can fluctuate. Your ending lines bring us to a sad truth about society. Happy New Year, Balroop. Hugs.
