Winter’s First Breath (poem)
Sharp trebled puffed and shivering,
Fog trembles from chattering lips.
A silent stream once a river in,
Lies dormant between black coffee sips.
Stalactited water drips sidelong sap.
Cherry, maple, and birch: the naked trees.
Stare at sweet neblids: lips get chapped.
Wave-whispering winds sway woods with ease.
A tasty tinge stings sharp surround air.
Snowflakes drift lightly, softly, sweetly, calmly.
Flying, fleeting, flurrying, faintly and fair.
Fluffy affections affect deeply, strongly.
Plausible affects of cause and effect:
Leaves fallen suffocated suffocating corroded.
Are now covered by snow white reflex.
In stasis stabilized snow melted, eroded.
Frozen tears hold wishes still.
Empty fears told: wishes fill.
