Smothered...in this deep winter bleakness as the sun walks away from us, an ancient journey to be traveled once again
but I will hold fast in my memory the days when it seemed close enough to pull from the sky and whisper to
I remember each moment it warmed us and the wondrous twilight when we squinted as it danced broad along the water's edge
these memories of the sun, they will offer me solace through the gathering darkness as we patiently await the lushness of the equinox with a certain feigned indifference that fools no one.
