Winter's Sand

Upon ice clear - frozen window pane
A single breath remains, captured warm - then dissipates

Beyond - whipped by season's song
Somehow, beauty mixes with fury
Living white smoke snakes across grassy fields
Powder dunes shift aimlessly
Seeking their space to claim

No sign of life...
The landscape foreign - engulfed as prisoner 
Inside I feel much the same
But..now beside fire's glow

When winter has had her say...this sand will pass
....give way to spring's soft plush green grass

    Your words gently take the reader to your private place and we too can share the dread of being held within winters grip and the hope of spring's salvation. Emile. #7
