  • I wake from dreams of trains and tunnels.

    Outside, the wind is restless,

    prowling,

    prying.

    Branches scrape against the wall

    like lost souls crying.

    Falling moon,

    snared among the net of pines,

    casts desperate shadows.

    Scraps of midnight,

    set loose,

    driven,

    drift and gather

    filling gaps,

    bridging cracks.

    From their northern mountain strongholds

    range forth the winter armies,

    night and wind and shadow,

    to flood the plains below.

    Yet, somewhere in the fractured moonlight,

    an almond blooms.

    Bare and fragile petals,

    a beacon,

    a prayer:

    That night will end with dawn,

    that seasons change

    that even a winter of ten thousand years

    must thaw.
