Late winter

What better way

To lay to rest

A restless love

Than by

Submerging it

In words

Once lost

To the idea

Of escape

To the


Of love

Words go

Like snow

Come back

Then go again

On their way out

Showing themselves

So beautifully spoken

Through the mouths

Of false companions

Cold so cold

The ever crisp air

Of late winter

Seems harsh

The way it stops


Under ice



It means


Will grow again

Will emerge again

From gelid cover

Moving again

Breathing in life
