Slipping and sliding…cold…ridiculously frigid cold…and yet……


Fire and Ice
Late winter day,
at last, the sun succeeds,
burning a hole in the fabric
that drapes the sky.
I am waiting
for the gray cloak of winter
and of grief
to ease,
freeing my shoulders,
unburdening the breath.

Afternoon stretches into evening.
Above the shattered mirror
of the lake,
the slipping sun
ignites the sky,
echoed in every shard.
