the poem Winter is coming

Winter is Coming

In the heart of autumn's twilight, whispers stir,
A herald of the coming frost's silent sweep.
Leaves, once vibrant, now a sepia blur,
Surrender to the winds that through branches weep.

The sky, a canvas of diminishing light,
Paints the world in shades of grey and pale.
Shadows lengthen, as day concedes to night,
And the chill in the air tells its ancient tale.

Winter is coming, with its icy embrace,
Clad in a cloak of snow, pristine and stark.
Nature bows to its cold, unyielding grace,
As the world turns silent, somber, and dark.

Hear the crackle of fires, the shutters drawn tight,
Homes alight with a warm, inviting glow.
Against winter's might, we seek warmth and light,
Finding solace in the hearth's steady flow.

Inspirations Behind

As I composed “Winter Is Coming,” I was inspired by the stark contrast between the fading warmth of autumn and the impending arrival of winter. This poem is a homage to the relentless cycle of the seasons, a reminder of the inevitable change that nature brings. I’ve always been fascinated by the way the world quiets down under winter’s rule, the way snow blankets everything in a hush of white. There’s a certain melancholy yet peaceful quality to this season that I wanted to capture – the coziness of finding warmth amidst the cold, the beauty of nature in its most dormant state. This duality of winter, both harsh and beautiful, is what drives the essence of this poem.
