Foreshadow of Winter

Updated on November 6, 2016

A dreadful whisper of frost;

Simple to recall from years past.

A cold tention breathed over by --

Recollection of--

the recurrence of death;

Reassurance of beauty

Calling not to forget --

The peace found in the chaos of the wind’s fretful might,

like a murmur of the infant’s slumber --

The blooms that have grown;

Matured into a bolder utterance of themselves.

The breeze that teases them from Security;

Wisdom in falling as Necessity in parting.

Now, bound by the ceaseless waves of breath --

red a cry of joy at a life fulfilled--

Cast away by Season’s crucial hand;

Set apart for the Preface of Death as the Epitome of Life

They are let go,

Released as a fable to be conceived

by the futile will of time
