Asleep in Spring, Awake in Winter

winters-come-back

Earth’s laden snow, pristine and fresh, accumulates through shades of dark, while warmth cuddles me in the night, and winter fights its way back into February.

By morning, a chill clings to my hair and warmth dissipates when I pull back the covers, exposing itself to long shadows stretching across the room. I wander out into the silence of this old house, open the door to an electrocution of frigid, while a cloud of breath escapes into the arid air biting my face.

      Because warm weather lures us outside and frigid doesn’t.
