I unzip the seams of my soul and let out Winter,
her chilly chaos chastises tonight to give up her
solitude to the riot of white that reins outside
my frostbitten window, erasing Summer's fingerprints
and extinguishing Autumn's kindle, Winter looks
at me with the second sight of her arctic owl eyes,
and I know that there will come a time when the
moments of my remaining mortality will clink against
Eternity-Winter's lovechild-and I will come away
from the encounter one step closer to washing my
mistakes clean, until my soul beams ambrosia white...
Once I was lost, once I was unloved-even by myself,
but snowflakes shivered out of my pockets and endeared
me with the poetry they possessed, I caught a glimmer
of solstice glamour in their symmetry, I tried to
catch their warm white whispers on my tangerine tongue,
but their purity was too vivid I had to look away...
to the little lacy lovelies of Winter faeries melting
into my skin, sweet and wildly beckoning I felt them
shear my soul into snowflakes, and then I knew that
the forfeited possibilities of my past can't hold me
back from reclaiming myself, the Hopes I watched fizzle
away before my down cast eyes can't keep me from my
renewable growth, or even to touch a Sky where the
Hurt is cocooned and Healing is given birth from this
Wintry Womb, maybe one day I will learn to love myself
better than anyone else can, and then I will know
what it's like to possess the soul of a snowflake...
