winter’s revenge: a limerick.

dead winter

Spring comes to life, blossoming under blue skies
Summer brings the heat but humidity too high
Fall is often a relief
But it soon turns to grief
When winter comes and everything dies

About what sandra thinks

Sandra is a writer, blogger, poet, artist, emotional disaster. She thinks far too much and sleeps far too little. Sandra lives in the Northeastern U.S. but dreams of an oceanfront home in Italy, but she would settle for a non-oceanfront home in Italy, too. She loves books, brutal honesty, coffee, and the color black. She hates insincerity, beer, whipped cream, and facebook. And she is uncomfortable talking about herself in the third person.

  3. Not necessary that things only die in winter. Winter has its own beauties.
    There should be changes, there should be seasons, so that we understand the difference between them.

  4. Winter sucks. Though, after the dread and darkness comes rebirth, so I guess there’s no light without the dark.
