against the frost

nature | poems

return yearning dawn
hold golden sun tightly
pearl white moon alight onyx skies
opal stars sigh
wish night brightly on
chill and ice reduce streams to freeze
upon the frozen bed fallen leaves
limbs cold dark unrooted twigs bent
frigid water reserve the pointy stem
observe the curved shroud
lifting her leaf torn head bowed
black branch against the frost
shuttering shattered shy sentiments
slowly soulfully follow a haloed snow blown spin
humbled by winters wound up wind
wait for Spring.
