Our Winter

Near the window of my house,

I try to taste the

wild but nevertheless real air 

in every moment of winter. 

 

Many rickety lanterns

with the color of red-and-white

sway in the ancestral trees.

They eagerly yell and smile

to the people who walk on

the nearly deserted streets.

 

"How are you doing today?"

 

Rolled-up red leaves

lay and float on the 

yellow slick roads.

 

Families sit

beside brilliant bonfires.

The fire of winter warms

and hugs every one's heart

in this endless season.

 

“We are really good.”
