The last of the winters

Look outside the window. It’s the last snow ever. Would you go outside? Would you taste it? Is it easier to enjoy than regular snowy days, that you’ve already seen? You chose not to celebrate previous snows. What will you do today?

There will be no more winters. We’re almost sure of that. That one season will come and will become the last one. But we’ll never know until the next one comes. Powerless, worried, hidden. This is the last winter we saw. Almost one year after  the beginning of the war that was not supposed to come ever again. Winter that was presumed to be one of those harsh ones. Winter. That dreamy land between ideas, blankets and deathly, freezing chains that does not let any light inside. Narnia or depression? Bruegel, Wyspianski, Friedrich, Joanna Karpowicz –  visual representation of winter has wonderful traditions. But let’s not romanticise too much. Winter could be beautiful and ugly. Winter could be death. Winter could be you resigning of the dreams you once had. Should we all fall asleep and wait till spring comes?

We’re looking for works related to winter mindset and aesthetics, climate catastrophe and winterish dreams. And – we do not look for answers, we’re looking for poetic statements from different parts of the world.
