Leave your shadows behind

Standard

that hour.

on the long path to spring,

when darkness clears

and the trees drop their skeletal shadows in the snow

like a bad memory,

like baggage one no longer needs

to carry.

when the frost glistens with a gazillion different suns

in a myriad different eyes

and the crows’ croaking falls

silent

silent…

that hour.

like a letter from someone you love,

a letter you never thought

was coming.

when you

leave your shadows behind

and walk into the light.

that hour.

Winter

Standard

So the snow comes down from the sky

through an invisible sieve

hissing.

 

All birds have gone – the muzzled silence

the night’s only sound.

Homes sleeping.

 

Frayed blankets of white alight

from radiant indigo clouds;

solitude bites into them and they are

unraveled.
