Snowflakes

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
Here
Alas!
Crispy airblue
grabs
snow everywhere
Still
The frozen
skybreath awakes
Nothing dares to fall…
