I’m Cold

The wind is raspy
Wailing a parched lament
It scratches my winter coat
Filing the rough patches
Dry skin from chapped lips
Flakes to the floor
Chill from faraway snowflakes
Bites at my extremities
Motivation for movement
Frozen in my joints
Very little getting done
Waiting for the thaw of spring
To continue with living
And basking in the hot sun
