Adrift in an exhale of
a black-capped chickadee.
Chilled beyond reason;
shadow of Fall creeping.
Consequences pale in
a renewed twilight palette.
Display the absence of presence;
within that soulless calm.
Blisters upon the heart
by a moon's burning desire.
Skip into a mountain meadow
with a lasting frail contentment.
Laugh at the line to
the strength of "ties that bind."
A desperate waltz during
that autumn's romance.
Wake a dismal decay
of a carceral winter's grip!
Waiting for a springtime kiss
As passion blooms; life's breath après.
