Mourning

Frostbitten,
fumbling fingers
and numb hands
seek warmth
and rejuvenation
in crevices; through friction.

Icy air
pierces woolen layers;
suffocating,
strained lungs.

The stars
shed light
on abandoned streets,
skeletal trees.
Earth engulfed
by oppressive silence; deathly sleep.

‘Tis oft said for
a heart that’s dead –
is mourning what it
possesses no more.

I wonder then, what is being mourned by the deadening weather?

I know it’s a little depressing as the first post for the new year. But then, living in freezing temperatures (for the first time!) and reading a book that brings winters to life was too inspiring to not write. 🙂

As I kissed you
while you were asleep;
you unraveled like a flower
submitting to the bees.

Untitled

Somewhere,

amidst the darkness

and the landscaped

greenery,

I sit on a rickety chair

directly below a tree.

I gaze all around

at nature’s bounty

and within

the confines

of my infinite mind…

I muse aimlessly.
