Hello, winter
Sun’s rays through the haze like shards and splinter
Night stretching taut,
Below the flyover, the skinny girl with blue toes does rot

Cosmic ocean, an infinite sky
As they converge, an amber horizon lies
Night is witness as benevolence stands guard
The chill leaves her soul untouched, body marred

Dew greets the petal as dawn breaks,
Numb from the cold, every muscle in her body aches
Thin shawl, a rich inheritance, wrapped around,
Scrounges the bin without a sound

Billowing winds, a deafening silence,
The poor are winter’s special clients
Welcome to lives riddled with misery,
where food and warmth are a luxury

Snow capped mountains in their pristine glory,
the hills hide in them many a story
One of them, a girl’s skeleton as white as snow,
A beautiful soul, life leaves her without a woe

Oh winter, you break their slumber
Put them out of their misery, their lives just a number
Oh winter, faithful winter, you do your job well,
Every year, we hear the toll of the death knell
