We weren’t the only lonely ones. The sky, cloaked in a swirling slate of fog. The day, lost in gray haze. And all these tiny blushing blossoms, laughing their way upward on tangled branches. Coral candy-colored giggles, framed in ivory fluff. As if it wasn’t quite enough to mourn alone. The world is frosted soft, aloft in its own solitude and song, and I want to gather these broken bits of frozen heaven into cold pockets and thaw them one by one. These trees have downy blanketed their secrets, now safe from our gaze. I’ve collected these flutter-falling days like snowflakes, icy promises on your quiet skin, waiting for sunlight.

winter’s white cotton kisses
tumble, fall and flow’r
