Waiting For The Chill To Break

photo by Frank Lee Drennen

It's cold, waiting for the chill to break.

I crawl under the covers
Deeper into hiding
Exhausted from the push and the pull
Comforting myself in the warm darkness
Locking out cold distrust

Now it's spring, and I can't deny the light.
Everything around me renewed
It's the fresh air
Breathing green and jasmine
Awakens in me a restlessness
A sense to clear away the dust

Dedicated to my friend Cindy Lee & her son Alexander. 
Rest in peace, Paul.
It has been wonderful to know you through the love of your family.
