Graveyards in Winter

Graveyards in winter
Carry finger-tipped whispers
That cling to the mist.


A Dalliance Swims

Touching hands take their time,
Sparks and distractions
Sit and shepherd the light,
Broken icicles melt,

The countryside thaws
And then a dalliance swims
Like two beautiful streams
As they meet at a river,

Rising hope quells disaster,
A new day has dawned,
As bridges sing breakthroughs
And the water forms dreams.

Ice winds circle,
People hunch
From building
To building
And the winter
That’s been muttered of
For weeks
Drops with aggression
And covers
The city in cold.

This is when
I miss you most,
The glow in your eyes
Enough to light up a night sky,
The kiss of your lips
A sweet tender joy,
The moment I’m happiest
And yet here we exist
Split by the frost,
A confusion compounded.

Streets smell of burnt wood
And longing,
But the time for revelations
Is over,
I hold out my hands
And there’s nothing
But chills,
A dream hanging spent
Like a breath,
A loss cold as winter.

Winter Crow

Watch the
Winter crow
Watch it
Rest in the tree,

A black heart
In a
Skeleton chest.

Hear it
Bark like
Its singing
With its
Guttural call,

A death crept
From an
Echoing hall.
