Winter and me, Binita Adhikari, Runner up, Poush 2074

Pines are full of snow
Wow! its a winter time
You have decorated my muddy ways
with pleasant whites

Morning nowadays,
no smell of dust
no pollution
walking through the woods,
vapor coming up from my mouth
on each breath,
Its really fascinating!

Dear winter,
you made the running water frozen,
but my heart gets melted on you
goosebumps appear,
my pulse rises and I get flushed
Still I am sorry,
I can’t love you..

My mom has to sleep bare,
we have got only one blanket for three
and we can’t beat a severe you with that
I wish I could love you..

Despite soothing rhymes,
my sisters remain awake the whole night,
our woodless bed on floor
can no more withstand you
I wish I could love you..

My sister gets repeated attacks of asthma
And my mother has to beg again
for her treatment
I wish I could love you..

My toes get frost bite,
I am no more able to go on work
Dear winter, I wish I could love you..

My sisters are shivering
This winter also,
my savings can’t afford their
jackets and trousers
I wish I could love you..

The torn shoes of my mother
aren’t strong enough
to fight against you, Winter
How could I love you?

Tears and stress
that’s all you have gifted till now
How can I ignore them?
You haven’t just cracked my lips
but also my comfort, happiness

I agree,
you bring on a thrill and
I get mesmerized on your beauty..

Our dating on woods, kisses,
your warmth to my body
I adore you..
But I am sorry to hurt you

On returning to home,
they all go on vain,
These innocent eyes and helpless hands
steal my emotions towards you,

My situation can’t stand your purity
I really adore you,
But I am sorry again
I can’t love you..
