A Winter Night In Texas

A Winter Night In Texas

written by: Jayanthi Chandra

 

The bushes turn into giant mushrooms
The snow covered caps, surreal blooms
The trees stand leafless and forlorn
In the bone chilling minus fourteen

The ground covered with white costume
Brings a sense of apocalypse and doom
The mind is only lukewarm
To the pristine glory of winter storm

With righteous urgency
Governor declares emergency
It’s time to count the blessings
Thank the stars for small mercies

A sturdy roof overhead
Power supply uninterrupted
Pantry replenished in such times
Slowly the trepidation sublimes
