Winter Remnants


Glisten, as you fall from the sky
Bitter shapes taking place in their puzzle space on the ground
Crunch, crunch, crunch
My feet break the bones of their structure
As I make my way
The chilled air squeezes itself into my lungs
I see the proof leave my mouth
In out, in out, in out

The bare-boned trees fill the landscape
Speckled green lays throughout
Above me is a swirl of blue and gray
The sun hides behind a large cotton cloud

When I hold the frozen bliss
My hands capture the biting cold
Then quickly the flakes soften into a
River of water
It flows from my grasp back from
Where it came
I watch as it disappears

Winter stains my coat wet
My eyes moist
My throat dry
My nose red
The earth white
