Wintry Nostalgia Nailed

(Inspired by Shania Twain’s song , You’re Still the One)

Vatsala Radhakeesoon

Amidst my green tea and coffee fumes
and some wine for you
Shania dives the lyrics
You’re Still the One
cherry-smiles on my lips
Why ?
I don’t know

There is no Present
No Future
It’s the past locked song for us
Yet on this chilling evening
of tropical trickiness
it anchors its Pride
I don’t know

You brought love
to the physical plane, all fickle
Well, we all did in our youth
Some keep the repetitive wheel churning
through salt-peppery and greyish
to look trendy-freaky
They say “there’s no other way!”
Why ?
I don’t know

The song insists its charms
That’s the power of wintry dry-glow
I let it be as it is
I don’t know

Sometimes we just rewind to go
with the flow of a dream died too young
I don’t know

I let the song exteriorize its own truth
Calm canvas warms your shapes
Winter is the winner

Why ?
I don’t know

The chilled island breeze surely knows.
