Eternal Winter by Samadrita Ghosh


To me, the cold is warmer than the sun

For in the mountains of eternal winter

I found countless homes


But in one little shed by the valley,

I left myself and brought back a shell

So I could write about the mountains

Like I'll never touch the cold again


The fresh air, the moss

The gold in the leaves

And the never forgotten loss

These are the only places for me

Even if just on paper and prose


But the wind consoles me

And steals away my pieces

From the places I tread upon-

The frivolous cells of my skin

And the mist of my hesitant breath

Have become the cold sigh of the mountains


I am scattered like chaos. I am everywhere
