Snow, bury me.
I never want to breathe again.
Such fine words seem so cruel in youth.
Now they are but fanciful.

Would I see Death's face.
Would She smile through sad eyes?
How silly, sentimental,
held by cold, blank light.

A poet's preferred end --
swallowing page after page
after page after page after page
after page after page after page after
page.

Reading dawn to sleep,
trembling. What's more,
a bed of frost to hold your bones.
A bed of frost would kill the moss.

That brings me to another page.
Lichen frozen on a tree.
A thousand photographs of ice
etched in still-framed life.

I never want to know.
These words but huddle in their fall.
Sweep the leaves from daylight's sweep.
Snow, bury me.

I would choose an avalanche of your words  
I LOVE this write of white, night and poetic plight.
YOU rock.. and it rolls me

"How could I stand here with you and not be moved by you."

Dang dang dang...
JM beat me to exactly what I wanted
to say - perhaps not in her words,
but doggone it all...

they're close.

Thanks, Mike!

It's not nice to think that we'll someday be forgotten.  The neat thing about snow, though... is that it melts...

Nothing wrong with a little snow, Mister BlackSquirrel...

But microscopes are prudent
In an emergency.

Snow for me is a shorthand symbol for death. Not necessarily physical death, though.

Mikey, there is such stark beauty in your words, one is often left blinking back the images.

You rock? yes
