The frozen skybreath awakes circa 1983

Sullen snowflakes sit
Compacted retracted
Falling day by day
Slowly seeping weeping sifting
Through thicknesses’ fog of cloudy sky
White and gray coagulate
And smother life away
Moons melt
mediocre mist
Yielding gray and white
Hours and minutes pass
sun’s pointing prisms
Crispy airblue
snow everywhere
The frozen
skybreath awakes
Nothing dares to fall
Azure semi-sphere
of atmos
Above….is empty

I write poetry about love and loss, what I observe, experience, and pine for. I’m an acrobat, yogi & mom. My writing has been described as resiliently defiant.
