February: Winter’s last breath

Your danger grabbed me

pushed me down into the snow

until I couldn’t breathe and my tears turned to ice

DSC00773Lay there or get up

DSC00767The cold wrapped around my body

DSC00816Lay there or get up

DSC00806There was no warm hand of spring to cling to

the decision was mine

there had to be a spark

DSC00810like the hope of bright green life

20140327_102850it shot through me

DSC00791I stood against the cold

DSC00698A warm glow in my breast

grew until it melted the frigid

and breath flowed once again

DSC00686Goodbye February.

Goodbye Winter.
