Deep and Deeper


snow deep and deeper in the woods
february characterless late afternoon

wind cutting through the leafless trees

twisted limbs entangled within 

their summer and fall fashions 

no longer being worn

boots crunch the snow afoot 

in the tromped- on snow

slate gray overcast day 

some sound off in the distance

bear, moose, elk???? doubt it

they’re not within 1000 miles of here

just dogs and rabbits around these parts

fallen trees, fallen branches, fallen angels

snow angels looking for mystical redemption 

on the uneven ground looking upwards

heavenly piles of snow

just keep walking collar up hat pulled down 

flurries begin to fall, I’m
in no hurry

not going anywhere really

my soul wanted to take a walk

sat down to make a small fire

no matches so I used my pyrokinetic skills

cracking popping smoking burning

sat there evaluating my life

sat there thinking of nothing warming myself

dusk settling in mid-winter twilight
