A New Metaphor

Winter is Like Pregnancy

It can be beautiful.
It can be enjoyable.
It can be fun.
Many can stand it multiple times,
Some cannot.
Often it is miserable,
And you want to die.
Ultimately, you are glad that it happened,
And that it is over.
Because now you can enjoy newness
With greater appreciation.

Thanks to the Cache Valley wind for inspiration.
