In Wintry Days

Angelic stillness of snow.

My silk imaginations

I spin in ode to the Song,

the soft flakes falling, white,

out of the ashen Sky.

And what is a lonesome Star

masquerading as the Sun?

I ordain myself of Truth

as a mirror or a cog.

In this season of rebirth,

I am not yet born.

Time comes slow to the heart,

and we fend off destruction

with pikes and our teeth wide open to the World.
