Winter moods..

The change of season brings with it a change in our moods. After the exuberance of the summer and colorful days of fall, it takes a while to accept the cold and dark days.  I seek solace in Tagore's poem .. that even the dreariness of winter conceals the birth of new life:

    It is not merely a song of the end
    Only it seems that the end is near
    Deep within them is the call of return
    O Winter you conceal
    Within the deep nights and barren branches
    What you will return in Spring.

    (‘Sheet’, Purabi, 145, translations by Amrit Sen)
