...Appraising the Avalanche...

Updated on January 8, 2018

A frozen epiphany, underground

Endorphin elation, barbaric sound

Deep within, vision blurs

Fetal pulse points, amateur

Breathing, with flowing sweat

Primal victory is met

The avalanche slopes ahead

Slowing, a sense of dread

Until the realization arose

To set it back

Truth now plain, exposed

Arms outstretched, palms upright

Pushing back, second sight

Goddess warrior white, gold

Differentiates with truth untold

Appraising the avalanche inside

Absolute answer within, resides

      I can sense a feeling of haste in your poem, as if the world is running wild.
