Withered, stiff, dull, dead? Within, sounds of life - burrow. Hidden, sheltered, safe.
Bursting forth, through death And decay; Burning so bright, In fierce defiance.
Another passage. First so bright! Then…dull. Reminds, One day I will rest.
Two creatures, huddled. Backdrop of darkness, falling. Together, survive.
Fingers extending; Threatening cold, advancing Darkness to follow.
