Winter’s Landscape

20130104-161211.jpg

winter’s landscape
a cold slumber
the bright clouded day
above the drab tree line
branches bare
reaching out
pointing claws bid
to look away
dull roots
reach
cannot draw at all
from the soil
suspended
no movement
but the stubborn
bird
scratching among
dead leaves
a symphony unsettled
perhaps a companion
to the sound of
footsteps
trodding over dormant
grasses
brave explorer
shallow pools
hardened by the
crystalline freeze
the bleak
frightening
beauty
of sleep
only a short while
seems like
purgatory
the still
and still
of
wait
