    Where snow lines perinnially cover
    the blessing of last summer with
    its latitudinal boundaries
    and the sorrel tree does not bloom
    my own soil erupts as
    a withered vine
    there are leaves as brittle
    as ancient scrolls

    Sorrow roams freely
    sorting through this sordid season
    killing each petal of
    a rose that had
    only months before
    just unfurled
    ... could you hear
    its muffled screams
    as it died in the cold?

    The monster of January
    wields its spear of breath
    The 'hawk' convulses
    in the stamen of the iris
    and I yearn to
    understand its infallible
    verses as I pass through
    the gauntlet of these two
    known enemies
    hoping to safely reach
    Spring

    With the strength exhibited in this beautiful poem,
    I know you shall reach Spring.

    I enjoyed the read

    I only wish I could write as beautifully as you, soul. Love the great imagery. You paint pictures in my mind.
