December Snow and Sky

December
Finality embers
shaken and stirred
Remembrance
Ballerina snowflakes begin the dance
All these wings are too frozen for flying
All this white paint of winter is drying
The art of dying
Set against the snow and sky
meaning is numb
A grey shroud of longing covers the sun
December
It's colder than I could ever remember

Snow angels
haloed by Christmas lights
The day has bled itself white
December
That familiar shiver of childhood I remember

I think I'm dying
In the most glorious way
In a New Years scene set against the snow and sky
December
Winter demands your surrender

But I'm not listening
I'm in every silent coma bud of green
Eagerly awaiting the spring

We have about 6" of snow at the moment and that's unusual for southwestern Ontario. The harshest part of our winters seldom show their face until January thru the first couple weeks of March. The skies do tend to fade their hues though

Some may think i gush over your poetry, or that I have a crush.  Funny I only know you through your words and your words make me so happy soul drifter, I really do savor every word.  I look forward to your poetry, it is a very special gift.  Merry Christmas to you good poet.
