Long Awakening

fogs ghostly opaque
through the
winding valleys
and rivers

somber landscape
the mucus
from its
sleepy eyes

of color and
slowly encroaches
the subdued,
lifelessness that
once was dark
Awaken morn.
Stars hide
in plain
sight of

flakes of
cold dust
that had
rested upon
life's walkways

Sundogs and
their prismatic
once shown
above frozen
Midwest meadows

Outstretched fingers
delicately caress
the imminent
as the
of sorrows
soon will
pass in to
nighttime skies

Forgotten is
the burden
of lingering
love’s desire,
innocent, fragile
snow angels wing’s
melt away,
regardless of their
undying will
to soar beyond
the streaming
colored rainbow
and unto the
sunlit oasis,

Awaken morn…

where memories
and moment’s pause
grow ever longer

O Love! thou makest all things even
In earth or heaven;
Finding thy way through prison-bars
Up to the stars;
