An Ode to Winter

Deep Black Cold Starry Night
Chill breath from skies sigh
Thoughts razor blade sharp
Shards of Blue Reality
Cut through long buried dreams

I was born on a day encased in ice
It thawed one day, my heart
Under June Blue skies
unexpected, immediate and impulsive
The chill crept back in
falling leaves failing to conceal the cracks beneath
Now the steely blanket covers us
the thaw just a memory

Dark Biting Chill Starry Night
My signal uninterupted
The feed is clear
No hazy thoughts of humid need
Only clear crystal shock
There is only one way to follow now
Forward from within first
warmed by fires inside
