The sky setting

Creep the light

Feel home

To float in sad sunsets

My shadow

Cold as ice.


Hazy mirror

Adds years

Or subtracts them

Things I must remember


Move, even hesitantly,

Jump if you are lost

Tell the younger

Make, do not follow,

A path,

Worth remembrance.


Cabin is lonely,

Wide is the lake,

Gibbous moon

Hangs low.

As I sip the darkness

Of my winter.

Shadows are wide

And cold.
