YELLOW Grey drizzle – cold, damp, Sopping landscape; but peeking Colored petals, hope.
When alone – warm, sweet. Together, a horror show. Leader calls, attack!
Other’s families – Warm, welcoming, stable, fun. Not mine, my burden.
The days are longer. A gentle breeze flirts some warmth. More snow! Bitter hag.
Down a dark, dank hole. Ladder, pinky – holding on. Just let go or climb?
Gray and white palette – Frosted pines bend in the wind; Ice crystals, floating.
MEMORIAL Immortalized names – Who only time remembers, In stone, on a hill.
SNOWFLAKE Fluffy white dusting – Blanketing all it touches, In cold purity.
SMOULDER Barely contained warmth. Heady anticipation. Waiting, wanting – ache.
