Winter’s Grasp

winters-grasp

To the dark and dreary, I acquiesce

A steel grey sky harbors silence, grieving

and I regress, lost in proper pain and process

Aware as storm clouds gather, scheming

A steel grey sky harbors silence, streaming

and of hummingbirds and summer’s warmth, I obsess

to chase away this chill I’m feeling

Poking at demons dancing in lukewarm tea without success

And of hummingbirds and summer’s warmth, I guess

some would say a lost cause, a fool daydreaming

except in the backcountry where heard prayers nonetheless

lead to healing and quiet angels intervening

humming softly until the dark and dreary acquiesce
