Time Frozen Deep

Buried in the leaves of a Fall gone by,

memories wait for Spring


Entombed in hope as Winter reclaims,

till birds return to sing


Cold and dark, the seeds of change,

lay dormant ill disposed


Snow is falling, the wind blows hard,

escape routes all but closed


Hearing new footsteps walking above,

the weight compressed and strained


My sentence malingers, time frozen deep

—the cold to ease the pain


(Dreamsleep: February, 2021)
