Because Winter’s Coming

When I miss you most,
I haiku made-up factoids
about things that grow.


a passion flower
blooming in New York City,
could be Audrey II


in autumn, leaves blush
red because winter’s coming,
bringing Snow to all

But, when my want grows
hot and wild, I think,

warm lavender oils,
filling me with dreams of us,
of you… lost in me

the wee notes…
– Someone dared me to write something that “includes haiku, horror comedy and Game of Thrones references, sexual longing, and emotional depth.” I gave it a go (for a book).
– I shared a passion flower (below) on Instagram and a friend suggested it looked like Audrey II. I agree. And, of course Jon Snow. Do I have to say a thing about Jon Snow?

  1. LOL…the first thing I thought of was a meme on FB…when he keeps saying winter is coming and all you can think of is 8 inches of Snow…but I love the pics you put into this. They illustrate the poems beautifully. I truly enjoyed the want and longing in this group of poems….just lovely.

  2. What better to write about than love and romance, but in addition Magaly you always manage to insert something delicious into the mix which makes your writing so delightful.

  3. This is fabulously awesome! And Jon Snow…Oh My SNOW! I’m currently obsessed with him. I’ve just finished season6 but I’ve DVR’d season 7 so I can watch them all.

  4. Soul-stirring and beautiful..romantic and powerful..I love your dreamy words and all the majestic visuals to go with them..pure feasting experience! I love all the connections woven into your poetry..and who wouldn’t love a blanket of (Jon)Snow to embrace! That gentle passionflower is meditative.. my heart is so drawn to that bright red leaf..and I can almost smell the scent of that lavender bed with your beautiful words !

    Enjoy the full moon tomorrow !
