this winter

this winter

has stripped her bare

this winter

has left her open

real early

this winter

wide open to the weather

wide open to everything

a distant sun

slowly touches

perennial patches

this creeping creaking winter

of slow and cold withering

faded lichens moss

the most hardy

she stands in the field

her leaves of gold

falling around her softly

half her former glory

yet so full of promise

so full of a still life


every single leaf soon gone

each branch trying

to extend around

and cover

its involuntary winter nakedness

she breathes in

she breaths out

she sighs

she breathes in

she breathes out

under a canopy

greener than envy

higher than skies

and denser

than a large village full of idiots
