Although we've found ourselves in a place and a time,


where days have blackened as nights grow longer and even darker still… 




Despite the ambiance of hopelessness,

The absence of the suns rays and the blight of the bitter breeze…




It’s in these moments 


We endure together…



Fighting to keep alive


the embers 
that flicker inside…




Reminding one another 


of the fire that ignites...


When we kiss


melting and fusing us


as we touch
 skin-to-skin

...


Entwining our roots,


strengthening our poise




Our branches,

Fruitful, yet bare


Separate and grow...


Reaching together

toward the blackened skies




blanketed beneath 
the still cold white



Silently transforming....


though we appear to have died,


We lie at peace...




Sleeping Awake


creating our own heat




Waiting together


for the return of Spring…
