winter’s perfect scene

snow falls on an evergreen-

natural flocking

sleep

being

broken and weary

seeking eternal slumber

she curled beneath it’s canopy

the winter tree laid down it’s leaves

blanketing her in serendipity

he made me

 

his boyish grin and twinkling eyes

penetrated my hard earned armor

and made it impossible to resist him

whispering sweet nothings

she gently placed him in his crib

as his eyes fluttered and closed

for the last time

moth

a moth flew in my tea

when i wasn’t looking

sometimes life is like that

nothing else matters

I’ve looked at life

from both sides now

been tangled up in blue

and still,

my dear,

some-how

the only truth

I know

is you

ricochet

 

behind white blinds

drawn tight

angry words ricochet

some hit

some graze

out of view

of prying eyes
