Asleep in Spring, Awake in Winter


Earth’s laden snow, pristine and fresh, accumulates through shades of dark, while warmth cuddles me in the night, and winter fights its way back into February.

By morning, a chill clings to my hair and warmth dissipates when I pull back the covers, exposing itself to long shadows stretching across the room. I wander out into the silence of this old house, open the door to an electrocution of frigid, while a cloud of breath escapes into the arid air biting my face.

      Because warm weather lures us outside and frigid doesn’t.
