Black February

In the grasp of Black February, where shadows stretch and linger,
Beneath a sky so weary, cold, and stark,
The land lies dormant, in a frost-bound slumber,
Awaiting the touch of Spring's first spark.

Trees stand sentinel, their branches bare,
Against the backdrop of a muted world,
Their silhouettes like brushstrokes, fine and rare,
On canvas skies, where gray clouds are swirled.

The river's flow is hushed, its surface sealed,
By ice that glints beneath the pale moon's glow,
A hidden strength, within its cold, revealed,
As stars above keep watch on the world below.

Yet in this depth of winter's silent reign,
A promise whispers, soft, beneath the snow,
Of life that stirs, preparing to reclaim,
The beauty lost to February's woe.

Black February, a pause within the year,
A time for rest, for reflection deep and true,
To honor all that's passed, to hold it dear,
And ready hearts for what is yet to brew.
Bare trees against a muted, cloudy sky
Bare trees against a muted, cloudy sky


Black February poem speaks to the heart of winter’s final stand, where the cold and barren landscape serves as a canvas for introspection and the latent promise of renewal.

This poem is an ode to the quiet moments of reflection that winter affords us, encouraging a deeper connection with the cycles of nature and the continuous flow of life through the seasons.

A snow-covered land hinting at the life waiting beneath
A snow-covered land hinting at the life waiting beneath

Inspiration Behind

As I walked through the chilling embrace of February, I couldn’t help but notice the stark beauty that surrounded me. The world seemed paused, caught in a breath between the exhalation of winter and the inhalation of spring. This duality of stillness and the underlying thrum of life waiting to burst forth inspired me. “Black February” was born from my desire to capture this moment of quietude, the serene beauty of the natural world in its most introspective phase, and the subtle, yet inexorable, promise of renewal that lies hidden beneath the surface.
