Winters Kiss

Poem By Alc Harris

Winter comes
long nights and days of subdued light
crisp sunshine an imposter
that cannot soothe chapped lips
it is said that winter be a thief of smiles
but I like to wear layers of comfort against my skin
eat warm pastries to satisfy within
dance with the leaves and falling snow
and then
when wind burnt hands and hearts numb
take them in to be warmed
beside the fire with deep mulled wine and wisdom
the only one to have no regrets from
is the lingering kiss of winter

Aw I love it! except here in southern Ca, We don't get winters like that. But you certainly painted a nice picture in my mind!

Forgotten Kisses

If I forgot the warmth of sun on my face
would you open the windows
bring light into this place..
If I forgot the tenderness of lovers kiss


There lived a man up on a hill
The locals did not bid him ill
But playground whispers of this one
Who kept his offspring in the sun

Angels Embrace

I wrap you about me
whenever I sleep
Like the arms of my Angel
and gently I weep

Faded Flower

Take down the wind chimes you hung in the hall
To catch our dreams lest they fall
Take down the pictures and sit here a while
With beautiful faces beautiful smiles


Sometimes as I sit here all alone
Through these pages I do roam
Songs of passion, loves lament
Of vampires, witches, devils torment


I read in the dailies
Marmite on toast is a work of art
sculpted and shaped
to appear almost lifelike.
