Last Breath Of Winter

Written by: Charles Fuller

Cold winter breathes
A blowing chill upon me
Stripping my spirit clean
Exposing to every eye

Icy December winds
Deep in my glacial slumber
Warmed by dreams of scented vibrancy
On echoes of a discarded summer

Jarring breath of winter
I do not fear you
For my warming blossoms
Are wakening within me

Last breath of winter
Releasing my frozen body
To the warm embracing succor
Of the first spring dawn
