  1. Poignant and evocative. I have often, as all of do, struggled home through wintry weather; to the metro, the railway station. Our rush to beat the weather, perhaps to jobs we hate, leaves us little time to reflect. Perhaps we ourselves are the fallen leaves… Like the photographs by the way…

  2. This is a wonderful poem Elan. Have you ever tried writing a book? I used to write a lot of poetry, really good stuff people told me. Then one day a had a few ideas for a story and I just sat down and began to write. I`ve been writing ever since! Your quite a poet!


  3. A beautiful picture painted with words! My favorite line- “Of orphaned leaves, desperate..To reattach themselves to trees.” Profound.

  5. Very beautiful! You just made the winter image in my head so warm and home like. And about the orphaned leaves wanting to reattach themselves to trees..this will stay with me for sometime. Thank you!


  6. So tactile! Really put me in a moment “Gloves are placed in pockets Or lost on streets of snow Mixed with a scattered brown batter”. Love it!

  7. Brilliant! This is a perfect description of the path I take to come home after work, and the lost gloves are a crucial part of it!

    Do make hay while the snow
    Lay round about the streets.
    You will want to breathe
    Calm air before the next bout.
    So choose to use your rare respite
    To cast away all possible doubt
    That you can weather the storm.
    Bundle up well, keep your spirit warm
