Winter rises and snowflakes fall
laying out a stark elegance
of pure white untainted beauty
Winter reduces everything to the basics,
to the bare bones of life
only the underlying structure is left behind
with time, we too are reduced
to our bare essentials, the bare bones
as our frailty comes to light
our bid for eternity slows down
and the winter of our lives
draws to a close, but life goes on, as
winter gives way to spring and
new life begins again, as winter ends.
