Poem: Winter moon



night has awaken inside your thoughts
it happens in silence like a transformation
of a caterpillar into a butterfly, unknowingly
you inhale notes of grey to the old memories
the heavy winter moon has been sitting on your brows
dragging down your eyelids, pulling them to close
but behind them you find
a comforting hiding place
and with the love you carry in your palm
you will prevail

  5. Without that palm full, I would hibernate the winter away, without that palmful I would grow too old too soon. Lovely.
