Eternal Shades of Winter

Eternal Shades of Winter

The sky unfolds before me

In serene quietude

In pale

Boundless beauty

Singular and silent

A vast space

Today, in mourning dress

An undivided grey

Bleak, eternal shades

Of winter

Darkened corridors of clouds

Like shadows

Fallen on the ground


And cold

Like betrayal

Yet dreamlike

And somehow soft

Like a velvet sigh


By the whispering

Of the wind

Or the weeping

Of the rain


And drifting on
