deep hibernation

breath freezes outside blanket

slow rhythmic breathing

wondering whether

Grab, rip, tear, anarchy exposed.

Hues of pink on pale green stem,

fleeting beauty, unnatural purpose.

I sip the first cup
carefully until cool,
swill and swallow,
refresh.

the deep twilight

the deep twilight
stillness before the night
