Tucked In

Posted in Poetry with tags , , , , , , , , , on February 4, 2019 by dc

Those snow basted hills
Gently smothered by morning,
Tucked in shivering,
All hidden hopes and dank thoughts,
Shocked and bewildered by light.

Every Dawn

Often when wrong
I float slow across oceans
Broken like driftwood
My skin sodden by storms,
Face aghast every dawn.
