She Used to Love Me


 

Winter REST (2018)

 

Winter.


Clean and fresh and cool

Night air

Stillness or howling wind

Brushing my face

Manscaping

Snow falling, I stop

Time stands still

Adoring star-lit beauty

I shovel

I love Winter


Frigid, blowing

Sunny, strikingly blue

I fasten my Crescent Moons

Struggling

I look afar

Vast, milk white, deep, rolling

Virgin snow

There for me

I step

I snowshoe

I love Winter


Brilliant and white

Snow under Atomics

Gliding, then fast

Descending, I bask

Home again

The piste envelopes

Me

As I am and as I was

In a moment

Free and home

I ski

I love Winter


Winter's reign

Returns

Once more


I stare laser-like at pavement

Its spectrum of shades

Frozen

Or safe I pose

Risk and I, unbalanced

Favor to winter's elements

Gusty and dark

Different, ever-changing

Unknown

Born anew

I relearn

I love Winter


I stand. I stumble. I fall.

I walk. I stumble, I fall

I shovel. I stumble. I fall.

I snowshoe. I stumble. I fall.

I ski. I stumble. I fall.

I love Winter

I will always, all-ways love Winter


In Winter's palm

I will stand

I will walk

I will shovel

I will snowshoe

I will ski

I will BE

In Winter


Winter

Used to love me

And still DOES

And always WILL
