Winter Now

Winter now Let me lie down Like a seed Deep in the shadows In the quiet bowels Of the black earth And dream Of the sun Let me Behind all curtains drawn Closing out The whiteness of my world The cold That will not go away While I long For the green of day Let it Invisible in my heart Pines solitary In the gray sky Slumber In the sweet repose Of blackness Until the sun Kiss the hypocotyl To display Itself without fanfare
