Before the storm

Before the storm 

These are the days
           of calm before the storm
the dark mornings
           the garden devoid
of flowers and in the air
           one can sense
the fragrance of eternity
           and the beauty
of neverendingness
           birds reluctant
to leave their nests
           lovers their beds
the night trails populated
           with frozen stars

Be mindful of your heart
           and know for whom it beats
Build memories
           to keep you warm
in the winter months
