Poem – For Now I am the Winter (Edit)

Edit of the previous posted here.


For now I am the winter
beneath the mask
revealed beneath the
cold water of the sea.

Eyes open to the sky
above the surface
breath held as snow begins.

Carried further into depths
away from the forming ice,
the sea floor echoes.

For now I am the winter
overtaking the autumn
slowing rivers and lakes
the graying sky swallows the sun.

Across the field a black swan
swoops low above
tall grass and sumac.

Winter’s presence everywhere
and nowhere as red wildflowers
disappear into white.
