First Snow

Winter slowly awakens

Searching for trees

Unwilling partners

In its tormenting, freezing dance.

 

Unable to flee

Winter’s cold grasp

The trees mourn

Their yearly fate

To sway to its crippling rhythm.

 

A blast of icy wind

Shakes the dying autumn leaves

The fire of life is out

The trees go to sleep

Dreaming of spring

In a shroud of snow.
