winter falls…

Winter visits her land

Complete whiteout 

clouds her vision

cold winds whip through every space
icing the crumbling walls 

she furls into her soul

to warm her bones

hope stoking her inner fire

a low flame remains

barely heat to speak of

only wet wood burns

smoke rises

the plumes creating dark skies

signals may come

wanting them not  to be misread

she slows her breath

to keep calm among

the long winter storm

her cheeks hold tears

frozen diamonds glitter

as she morns her loss

icicles kiss upon her lips

her fingertips touch the cold

heavy is his memory pressed there

silence is ever her nemesis

she feels her heart beat grow faint

as a pale shade of blue blood 

flows through her veins

she watches for him

along the edge of the trees

hints of him hide

among the shadows

trickery perhaps

meant to keep his memories alive

she bows her head

as the snowflakes 

dance on her eyelashes 

her eyelids grow heavy

from the weight of winter

she losing the battle

to stay awake…

as her eyes embrace the dark

she wonders if dawn will come

to break her deadfall
