Winter, Winter… Why I Love thee?

The coldness you present me, one that makes me hug the nearest person in search for warmth. What about coffee? Yes, coffee! It never tastes the same in any other season. With you, it has the taste of the sweet embrace of a loved one. The long, beautiful nights and the quasi-empty streets where I can enjoy some solitude – something I can never find in the sticky summer nights. Beyond your glooms there is hope, beyond the fogs there is sun. You are subtle, not blunt like summer. You are fresh, with or without rain. You are not just smart. You are generous and strong. You hold us by the shoulder; vigorously shake us just to lull us at the end.

If only I can have more of you!
